Society President Miranda Joicey, commented, ‘We identified Fife Coast and Countryside Trust as the charity we would like to support in academic year 2021/22 as they do a wonderful job looking after beaches and the Fife Coastal Path, for residents, the student population and the many thousands of visitors who visit St Andrews and Fife annually.’
The donation will be used to ensure that the sites managed by FCCT continue to be maintained for the increased number of visitors who are drawn to Fife’s amazing outdoor spaces.
