This year our chosen charity is:-
The Borders Macmillan Centre Fund:
supporting the ongoing work of the dedicated cancer centre at the Borders General Hospital
The nurse-led team based within Borders Macmillan Centre provide excellent care but there are a number of challenges facing cancer treatment that have caused them to look at how changing the ward environment could help them deliver that care, while also enhancing the overall experience for cancer patients in the Scottish Borders. There has been a huge appeal to raise the £830,000 needed to extend and refurbish the facilities. The fundraising for the refurbishment is almost complete, but there will be ongoing costs of running the centre that require substantial funds. This year, we are fundraising to provide ongoing support to the MacMillan Centre.
There will be teas, coffees, cakes & scones in the Village Hall from which all takings will be donated to the fundraising effort.
