Yvonne Eade (back row left in picture) received a cheque on behalf of Edinburgh Sick Kids Friends’ Foundation from staff and children at Cherry Trees Nursery, Melrose, recently, after they raised £110 for the charity that has been helping sick children since 1992. More than 100,000 children from throughout the east of Scotland and beyond, including the Borders, are admitted annually to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children.

On Saturday, March 14, a coffee morning in aid of SKFF will be held in the Reading Room of the Melrose Corn Exchange, 10am -noon, £1.50 for entry, coffee and biscuits. Please come along and find out more about the work being done for children by the charity. Visit
