Eleanor Bowman MBE of Anstruther, the driving force behind the East Neuk Wheelchair Charity Appeal has been made an Honorary Friend of Keepers of the Green.
In announcing the award, the Patron of Keepers of the Green, David Joy, described Eleanor as a "kindred spirit" who has worked tirelessly since setting up her charity in 1989 and raised over £430,000 to provide over 150 wheelchairs and numerous donations to help improve the lives of a wide range of individuals in the local area.
Mrs Bowman was awarded the MBE in 2007 in recognition of her exceptional contribution to charitable works.
In recent months both charities have worked closely together on a couple of occasions to share resources and provide highly specialist support to very deserving individuals.
