Can I take this opportunity to thank those involved in the recent shoe box appeal for soldiers serving in Afghanistan. Started at Kelso North and Ednam church the appeal spread across the Borders region.
Special thanks to the three local primary schools, to the many households and business who donated goods, to Rogersons Shoe shop who contributed over 100 shoe boxes, to the Post Office staff at Browns Newsagents in Kelso who weighed all the 280 boxes sent over 15 weeks. This small effort has really boosted the morale of those troops currently serving in Afghanistan.
