Borders General Hospital’s special care baby unit has received a £500 boost – thanks to a raffle held at a Supporting Women in Business event in Kelso.
It was organised by Sheryl Macaulay, a director with Borders accountants Douglas Home & Co.
Guest speaker Nicky Gray provided advice for those who attended and local businesswomen showcased their products, giving them an opportunity to broaden their client base. Douglas Home & Co. decided to include a charity raffle, asking all local retailers who attended the event to donate prizes, raising £250 on the night – and the firm matched that sum.
