The Border Holiday Group has been given a financial shot in the arm, thanks to a £1,000 donation from Hawick Cycling Club.

The cash was part of the income generated by HCC’s hugely popular Ken Laidlaw Sportive event in August.

Gordon Jackson, of the Border Holiday Group, said: “This amount is a great start to our fund-raising campaign for our next holiday, having only returned from a very successful trip to Austria in September.”

Hawick Cycling Club’s Hamish Smith commented: “We are delighted, that, for the first time, we are in a position financially where we can help other organisations in the local community. We also hope that we can boost other Hawick charities in the future.”
