Boogie night nets £1,200 for charity

CANCER Research netted just over £1,200 as a result of Friday night’s performance by the Border Boogie Band in Selkirk Rugby Club.

Along with a contribution from the gate at the hastily arranged rugby “friendly” between Selkirk and Melrose the following day, the coffers swelled to nigh on £2,000.

“That makes February one of our best ever fundraising months,” said Keith Hendrie, who helped organise Friday’s dance.

The Border Boogie Band return to their pub rock roots next Friday, March 9, at the Bridge Inn in Galashiels and will play the Eastgate Theatre in Peebles on Good Friday, April 6. Booking details for the latter event on 01721 725777.
