CHAS ( Children's Hospices across Scotland) has sent a letter thanking Parishes of Upper Tweeddale for our gift of £747 raised at the various Christmas services. They write "Thanks to supporters like you we made Christmas so very special for so many children across CHAS. There was much fun and excitement in the build-up to the big day, not least our fabulous Christmas parties complete with singing, games and special visitors such as the miniature ponies who came along with santa. Watching the children's faces light up when they saw them walk through the doors was incredible. For some families this will be the last year they have with their child, lets keep working together to make it the very best we can. Thank you again for being a special supporter and we look forward to sharing the imact your gift has made through 2018"
We also sent £500 to Broughton Primary School for the polytunnel project and look forward to hearing and seeing that develop.
