Kelso’s Eric Paxton (centre) hoped to raise £3,000 walking the Borders common ridings and festivals’ main rideouts this summer.

Instead, the 250 miles of hikes with more than 100 supporters have raised nearly £11,000 for MND Scotland and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Eric said: “It’s been amazing. The support from throughout the Borders has been tremendous. It’s been good fun.” To donate visit http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/trampers3.
