The memory of tragic Hawick Cashmere worker Alison Telford, who died from cancer earlier this year, has inspired former colleagues to raise more than £2,000 for charity.

At the end of October, a group of 49 employees from the Duke Street mill completed a route from Hawick to Ashkirk to mark the death of mender Alison, and also raise money for the Margaret Kerr Unit.
