Teddy launch at Kelso farmers’ market

A LOCAL children’s charity is taking a big straw bale to Kelso Farmers Market on Saturday.

The Borders Children’s Charity (BCC) has been invited by market organisers to take part in the popular sales.

And the straw bale will be used to present people with chances to win prizes donated by stallholders and local retailers.

BCC committee chairwoman Bronwyn Coggan said: “We are delighted to be invited to join the Kelso Farmers Market this weekend and it seems very fitting since so many members of our fundraising committee have been farmers’ wives since we began in the 1960s.

“All our fundraisers are volunteers, which means we have virtually no overheads and can ensure all funds donated go to help the children right here in the Borders who need our help most.”

The charity will also launch their new BCC Teddies on Saturday, Each costs £3.99 and all the money will got to BCC.

The market runs from 9.30am till 1.30pm in Kelso Square
