A BORDERS community transport charity has won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The Lord Lieutenant for Tweeddale, Captain David Younger, presented Tweed Wheels with their accolade.

The group’s vehicles are for anyone with special mobility needs or any non-profit-making community or voluntary group. They can be hired or driven by volunteers.

At the ceremony, David Rudram of Tweed Wheels commented: “Significant and welcome support in operating the two vehicles comes from the Tweeddale Thrift Shop in Innerleithen High Street .

“And I have to mention Marlene Borthwick who conceived Tweed Wheels and Fiona Henshall, chair of Tweeddale local area group of the Bridge.”

The ceremony coincided with the launch of the new Tweed Wheels minibus.
