GIRLGUIDES in the town are preparing to deliver the Christmas post.

Former district commissioner Jill McDonnell, who is one of the driving forces behind the annual fund-raising initiative, told the Hawick News: “Last year, all the money raised went back to the units for the girls, and a donation will again be made to our chosen charity, which last year was the Lavender Trust, members of which do an amazing job in providing complementary therapies for cancer patients in the Borders.”

Christmas cards can handed into the Guide Hut on Friday, November 29 from 9am-6pm and Saturday, November 30 from 9am-1pm, as well as Filmhouse (formerly Beanscene) on Friday, November 29 from 9am-6pm, and at the Girlguiding Hawick coffee morning in the town hall on Saturday, November 30 from 10am to noon.Each card costs 15p and only Hawick cards will be accepted.

Anyone is interested in helping with the Christmas post should contact Jill on 07793 889994.
