PUPILS at Donibristle Primary need the help of former students to help build a new trim trail.

Last summer, after the decline of an older play facility, new climbing equipment was installed for younger pupils with the aim of completing a brand new obstacle course for all ages.

However, costs for the project continued to rise and despite fundraising efforts, the school in Dalgety Bay still need approximately £5,000.

Depute head teacher, Karen Hart, said: “We thought about how important play time is to children – this is where they learn to take risks, negotiate, compromise and be kind.

“We are so lucky to have a team of dedicated parents who support the school by raising funds but the shortfall really stunned us.”

The hardworking members of the parent fundraising group hope to address this by launching a Go Fund Me.

She continued: “Let’s hope the generosity of Dunfermline Press readers can help get us over the line.”

The aim is to dream big by going small – they are inviting anyone who has a fondness for Donibristle Primary or outdoor play in general to donate a very small amount.

Michelle Glass, the chair of the group, explained: “If every young person that has left Donibristle Primary in the last five years has £5 to £10 donated in their name we will manage to raise the money.

“If every adult that has ever attended Donibristle Primary when they were a child donated £1 to £5, we will manage to raise the money.

“If we add in members of our wonderful local community, the world is our oyster!”
