Toddler’s heroic effort


IT seems that you’re never too young to help heroes.

The people of Galashiels and district supported the town’s Rotarians in their fundraising to the tune of more than £2,000 at the Tesco store.

The cash will go towards Calls for Heroes and Help for Heroes. Club president Peter Croan said: “Most of the money will buy phone cards to allow soldiers serving in troubled areas to phone home over Christmas and another large donation will go to aid the work done by Help for Heroes.”

Event organiser Norman Waldie said: “We would like to thank the public for their donations as well as Tesco for allowing us use of their foyer, and the Air Training Corps for help with the collection.”
