STAFF from a Dunfermline health centre put their best feet forward at the weekend as they completed the Kilt Walk.

The team of workers – titled Happy Feet – from New Park Medical Practice went the 14.7 mile distance and to raise cash for the Victoria Hospice in Kirkcaldy.

Nicole Devlin was one of the 15 doctors, nurses and medical receptionists who took part. She said: "We wanted to donate to a local charity and there were so many charities close to our heart for matters such as mental health, FND etc but ultimately, we all felt that the hospice gives an invaluable service both in our professional and personal lives.

"We came up with the team's name "happy feet" due to our love of penguins and the fact we were completing a big walk.

"We have all raised money for charity over the years, but this was the first time we have got together as a whole practice, and it was an amazing experience. The walk took us around 5 hours to complete and we all crossed the finish line together.

"We have so far raised more than £3000 for the hospice and the total is still going up. "There were lots of body aches and blisters afterwards and some of us are walking like penguins ourselves today (Monday) however our spirits are high, and we are already looking to plan another in the future."
