A GROUP of walkers from Johnstons put their best feet forward and helped to raise £800 for five local good causes.

Organised by the mill’s social committee, 31 people took part in the sponsored walk to Denholm, while 42 altogether enjoyed a meal and the recent 6 Nations international between Scotland and Italy in the Fox and Hounds pub.

Groups to benefit from their charitable exertions included 1st Denholm BBs, 6th Hawick BBs, 3rd Hawick Girl Guides, the Borders Holiday Group and Wilton Park Tennis Club.
