Staff from the RP Adam factory in Selkirk are set to raise funds for The Lavender Touch at the end of August by tackling walking and cycling challenges.

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.
