Galashiels’ generous shoppers

I should like to thank all those who supported Arthritis Research UK when we collected at Tesco in Galashiels recently.

Nearly £450 was raised for this charity which works to take the pain away from the millions who suffer, keeping them fit and active, provides information to help people with arthritis make informed decisions and healthy lifestyle changes, campaigns to bring in improvements in quality of care and works with others towards a future free from arthritis.

There are more than 200 forms of arthritis, and they can affect anyone of any age. Almost all of the 56,300 households in the Borders have, or will have, someone with arthritis. Your generous contributions to our collection, therefore, will help those who suffer in the Borders – thank you.

I. King

Secretary, Melrose Branch, Arthritis Research UK
