Please could we say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who showed their support to our committee member, Duncan Cameron.

Duncan spent two days in Tesco, Galashiels, shaking his collecting can and inviting donations towards our upgrading of the carer-van.

On July 11 and 12, Tesco management gave permission for BAAGS (Borders Asperger and Autism Group Support) to promote what they offer to the people of the Borders. Thank you to everyone involved in helping Duncan raise more than £520 – a huge amount of money given by the customers of Tesco.

The money will be used towards the cost of upgrading the van to a more eco-friendly model which will offer a bit more comfort to the residents, be more economical to heat and save on heating and water bills, but also leave a smaller carbon footprint.

Thank you to everyone who recognises the need some families have for respite/short breaks and show their support to BAAGS by making donations and offering us encouragement.
