Fife’s unsung heroes take centre stage at 2019 Kingdom FM Local Hero Awards
Hundreds of guests packed into the Rothes Halls in Glenrothes to hear amazing stories and mark the achievements of people across the region.
Top gong of the night was the Kingdom FM Outstanding Achievement Award which went to Elaine Wyllie MBE in recognition of her major contribution to the health and wellbeing of children across the globe.
The retired teacher from Burntisland started The Daily Mile initiative at a school in Stirling in 2012 and, since then, the initiative has been adopted in 63 countries, with 9,387 schools and nurseries taking part.
Mike Watson, Chief Executive of DC Thomson Media, presented the award to Mrs Wyllie, stating she had demonstrated that “keeping it simple works best”.
