Berwickshire fundraising effort, DB Parties, has held its last event.

Organisers William Smillie, Jed Lamb, Allan Whellans, Jamie Semple and Martin Aitchison are to call time on their project after it raised more than £12,000 in a little over two and a half years.

William Smillie said: “It was just an idea that a group of us had, and it grew.

“We were able to raise a bit of money for good causes, local clubs like Greenlaw Football Club and so on, by putting on party nights.”

A particular highlight was an event held in aid of Papyrus, a charity devoted to preventing suicide among young people.

“That came about because we opened the purpose of the event up to anybody who asked us,” said William. “So that was quite pleasing.”
