Ace golf day for friends of hospital

FUND-RAISING was to the fore for the Friends of Hawick Community Hospital.

Thanks to Mr and Mrs Rooney, the group held a successful charity golf match at Monksford, St Boswells and raised over £1,000.

John Oliver, chairman, said: “These funds have been earmarked for the jubilee bench which the committee are in the process of creating for siting outside the hospital main door and in respect of which the 41 Club and the Rotary Club are also kind contributors.”
