DUNFERMLINE woman Alexandra Morrison showed she could boogie as she raised more than £1,400 for Alopecia UK.

The full-time nanny organised a 12-hour dance marathon for the charity, which helped her after she lost all her hair suddenly through the condition in 2019.

The kitchen disco took place in her Aberdour Road home and she was supported by family and friends, who popped in to produce a few moves.

"I actually had a great day," she said. "Local friends popped in for a boogie and brought sweets and cakes to keep me going. My sister, Toni-Jane, came up from the Borders and danced the last three hours with me, which was amazing, and my fabulous husband, Richard, did two good stints during the day and also the last few hours.

"I couldn't have done it without all the support of family and friends and even had strangers reach out too."

Alexandra organised the event as part of Alopecia Awareness Week and, as well as raising funds, is keen to raise awareness of the condition and the charity which has been a vital support to her.

"I am raising funds for this small but hugely important charity during Alopecia Awareness Month and just spreading the word about a condition that many people live with and many people struggle with," she added.

"Alopecia UK's main aims are support, awareness, research and fundraising. It was through their Facebook groups that I realised I was not alone and the support I have had from this charity has been an absolute lifeline.

"I am now able to volunteer for the charity myself and it's amazing to give back."
