A Selkirk youngster diagnosed with a rare disorder that means his blood does not clot as it should – leaving him suffering severe bruising and nosebleeds – has raised £795 for charity.

Lilliesleaf primary school pupil Robbie Buchanan, 10, hosted a charity golf day, along with his grandfather, Murray Cleghorn, at The Woll.

As well as the golf, a raffle was organised by Robbie’s younger brother, Ross.

The cash will be winging its way to the ITP (immune thrombocytopenia) Support Association.
