Oh what a beautiful gesture!

REHEARSALS are well under way for the annual spring musical production by senior pupils at St Mary’s School in Melrose.

The show, Oklahoma, takes place on Wednesday, March 21, at 2pm and 7pm, and on Thursday, March 22, at 7pm.

For the first time, the youngsters, aged 10 to 12, have chosen to donate the proceeds from the Wednesday evening performance to charity, in this case the Margaret Kerr Appeal which is raising funds for an in-patient specialist palliative care unit at the Borders General Hospital (BGH).

Tickets (£5 adults, £3 children aged 15 and under) are available for the charity performance from Martin Baird Butchers and Jackie Lunn, in Melrose, and the Macmillan Centre at the BGH.

Alternatively, they can be purchased from the St Mary’s box office on 01896 822515 or at office@stmarysmelrose.org.uk
