Borderers came out in force to support one of the largest annual charity fundraisers in the region on Sunday.
The annual Walk of Hope, in memory of loved ones and in support of Marie Curie Cancer Care, took place at the Borders General Hospital.
This year, the walk was organised by the Galashiels fundraising group, and led by the Jedburgh Royal British Legion Pipe Band
Maureen Stevenson, fundraising manager for Scotland south, told us: “The numbers were down on previous years and approximately 100 people took part. The wet weather did not deter the walkers and the event raised £1,150, which is a great sum from a volunteer committee.
“The walk was led by local patron Anthony Foyle who welcomed the crowd and thanked the Galashiels group for their hard work, Euan from Borders General Hospital radio and the Jedburgh Pipe Band for their support. The Galashiels group are delighted to have raised the money, which will provide over 50 hours of care locally.”
