    Burntisland-based community project, Supper at the Sally, has received a £1,500 funding boost from independent Scottish broadband provider, GoFibre, also supported by Fife Council Warmer Places and Forth Ports. This vital funding has been used to support a winter meal initiative that kicked off on 30 December 2023 at the Salvation Army Hall in Burntisland. 

    During the pop-up event, attendees were encouraged to pay what they could towards a filling three-course winter meal, with the excess funds being reinvested into future suppers. GoFibre’s contribution of £1,500 was instrumental in covering the costs of sourcing quality local ingredients, cooking appliances, and venue hire. The event also received support from Totally Locally, who commissioned bespoke aprons for the dedicated volunteers. 

    Supper at the Sally was piloted in January 2023 with the goal of fostering community connections in a welcoming environment, combatting social isolation and alleviating the challenges of the cost of living crisis. As a volunteer-driven project, it also provides opportunities for upskilling, training, and personal development for those willing to contribute their time. 

    Two members of GoFibre’s team volunteered on the day, Karyn Psyl and Joe Young. The initiative relies on the time and dedication of local volunteers to ensure that the suppers can keep running. The supper is open to anyone in the Burntisland community who wants to volunteer or dine.  

    Several diners from last year’s pilot have become volunteers on the project. This is a step in the group’s efforts to develop a sustainable, self-organising culture. 

    Sally's Supper runs every Saturday at the Salvation Army Hall in Burntisland, 5.00 - 6.30pm. Click here to find out more.
