Purves goes pink on Friday

BORDERS Mitsubishi dealers and garage operators Adam Purves are going pink tomorrow.

For the 100 employees of the local business which has sites in Edinburgh, Melrose, Galashiels and Selkirk are wearing pink to support breast cancer care.

Forecourts manager Richard Garrie said: “We haven’t set a figure but we would hope to see a good couple of thousands pounds. It’s a very worthwhile cause.”

Staff are raising the money in support of a former colleague who battled the disease.

And Mr Garrie’s son, 16-year-old Ryan, is going to have his legs waxed by fellow Purves employee, Lina Sidlauskiene, who has recently qualified as a beautician.

Anyone wanting to support the pink-clad Purves team can go into the sales areas or forecourts to make a donation.
