We would like to thank relatives, friends and neighbours who have been so kind to Kerr during his stay in hospital.

Thank you for the lovely cards and presents – much appreciated.

We are grateful to our work colleagues for their kindness and support.

Thanks also to teachers and staff of Parkside and Wilton primary schools; the surgical team and nurses at Great Ormond Street Hospital; and doctors, nurses and staff of Ward 15 at Borders General Hospital for their kindness and support; as well as to the physio and O.T. teams for their continued help.

We also appreciate the efforts of Radio Borders and the special visit Kerr received from “Courage” the cat, and the visits and kindness by the Reverend Tom McDonald.

Kerr is improving slowly every day and we hope and pray he will soon be on his feet again.

On behalf of Marie Curie Cancer Care, I would like to thank everyone who took part in the original Daffodil Walk and the new 10K Walk.

Both were a great success and we plan to make the 10k Walk an annual event to run alongside our original and highly-successful Daffodil Walk. Thanks also to everyone who helped us in any way to make this event a success.

The sum of £5,200 has been raised to date, with more sponsor money and donations still to come in. If anyone still has money to send in, can they do so to the address below.

Next year will be the 20th anniversary of the walk and we hope to make it a special event. The date is April 6.
