THE latest Rowan Boland Trust fundraiser is held next Saturday, November 12, with a quiz night at Gala Rugby Club.
It follows more than £5,000 being raised for the charity by six cyclists who pedalled from John O’Groats to Galashiels in September.
Keith Irvine, Ron Murray, Stevie Halls, Alan Brown and George Henry, all from Galashiels, and Hawick’s Dougie Welsh, took part in the 512-mile challenge, which took the sextet a week to complete.
The main purpose of the trust is to support local emerging talent with financial assistance, and already youngsters involved in football, cricket, athletics, bowls and canoeing have benefited from grants.
There is a £20 entry fee for teams of four to the quiz night and forms can be obtained by emailing email@example.com
