Staff from the R. P. Adam factory are preparing themselves for a fresh fundraising challenge.
Employees have raised more than £10,000 for charities over the past five years. On Sunday, August 24, they undertake a sponsored cycle ride and walk, starting and finishing at the cricket club for Borders charity The Lavender Touch.
The cycle route is mainly off-road and involves crossing the summit of two local hills in a 30-mile ride that includes over 3,000 feet of climbing.
The 11-mile walk follows the Southern Upland Way and includes 1,700 feet of ascent.
Stock controller Alan Skeldon, who will be on the walk, said: “Roughly 25 staff will be taking part and we have set a fundraising target of £500, although we hope to raise quite a bit more than that.”
A family fun day follows the ride and walk.
