JED Thistle raised more than £200 from a new fundraising walk on New Year’s Day.

The rugby club’s eight-mile hike took the 35 walkers to Hundalee, along the right of way through Jedburgh golf course at the Dunion, Monklaw Wood, back down to Riverside and back to the start at Lothian Park.

Secretary Alan Hill said: “For a first effort and one which we deliberately left low key, it was a good turnout and we were pleased. We didn’t want a lot of people and the people of all ages who were there wanted to do it.”

The club gave £150 of the proceeds to Milfield day centre and it plans to organise another fundraising hike for next year and to make the event bigger.
