Asda workers in Galashiels have been raising money for the Tickled Pink charity for 25 years.

On Wednesday, October 20, around 10 of them are taking on a sponsored walk from the store in Currie Road to the Ship Inn in Melrose and back, a hike of around eight miles, to mark the 25th anniversary of the store supporting the breast cancer charity. Each member is tasked with raising £25.

Organiser Nola Milne said: “I have recently taken over the position of community colleague in the store and I am very keen to raise our profile and to network with groups who may be needing our support. T 4 2 in Galashiels has kindly offered do us a buffet for free to be ready for us when we arrive at Melrose.

"We don't have a target amount to aim for, but having had a couple of in-store events so far this month and seeing how well they have been received, I am sure we will raise a minimum of £500.”
