Kieron Butler, from St Boswells, and Galashiels’ Martin Lammie and Alan Everett pushed a treadmill to its limits at Borders General Hospital on Saturday, running a total of 48 miles between them.
Rosie Hardie, Chloe Robertson and Aimee Mathers also held a bake sale.
Between them, they raised £541 for the BGH dialysis unit. And 12-year-old Kieron, who was inspired to help after a relative needed care, isn’t finished yet. He’s taking on a sponsored run from Melrose to Gala rugby clubs and back on May 30 for the same cause.
