Arthritis plant sale success

We would like to express our thanks to all those who supported the Arthritis Research UK plant sale in The Wynd, Melrose.

A total of £290 was raised for the charity. This will help with the funding of £37million – £13million of which is spent in Scotland – worth of research currently being undertaken to help take the pain away from people with arthritis and help them keep active.

We are always grateful for your support and hope that some of you will be able to join us for a concert by the East Fife Male Voice Choir in Melrose Parish Church tomorrow (October 19) at 7.30pm. If you would like more information about this or how to get involved and help us take the pain away from the one in four people who suffer, please contact Isobel King on 0845 602 3921, email, visit or find the October Borders Challenge on Facebook, or just log in to www.justgiving/ to make another donation.
