AN abseil from Penielheugh in aid of charity raised about £1,500 last month.
Around 20 people from across the Borders undertook the 150-foot jump from the Waterloo Monument near Jedburgh after it was postponed from May because of high winds.
The fundraisers included three generations of the Fletcher family from Melrose - grandfather Robbie, father Jonathon and son Jamie - and Miss Galashiels Kristiana Le Mar who were all raising money for Deafblind Scotland.
The charity’s initiatives officer Drena O’Malley said: “It’s the first time at Penielheugh for Deafblind Scotland. We got a beautiful day and the views were stunning.”
One abseiler, Niall Armstrong, who has a relative who is a member of Deafblind Scotland raised more than £700 for the charity, which Ms O’Malley described as “a wonderful achievement”.
