Charity begins... in the butchers
A butcher’s Christmas raffle has raised £600 for charity.
The raffle, now in its fifth year, was at W A Waters in Selkirk’s High Street to raise money for Parkinson’s UK Borders branch.
Secretary of the branch, Selkirk resident Gary Hattie accepted the cheque from organiser Alan Scott, and WA Waters owner Darren Hoggan in the shop last week.
Darren said: “It’s the most we’ve ever made. It’s for a good cause. I’ve known Gary (Hattie) for a long time and he does a lot of work for people with Parkinson’s.”
Alan, who organised the 20-prize raffle, said: “The generosity of the Selkirk people is absolutely brilliant.”
Gary said: “The support we have had is just amazing. And it’s not a bad butchers either!”
The latest total is the highest the raffle has made so far. WA Waters previously raised cash for other local causes, including the youth club and the Selkirk Rhinos.
