Borders MP Michael Moore and Scottish Borders Council leader David Parker raised £8,222.62 on their Great Tweed Trek last year.

They undertook the 106 mile walk along the length of the Tweed in August, debating the Scottish independence referendum as they went, and raising funds for Radio Borders Cash for Kids (£6,578.10) and the Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team (£1,644.52).

Michael Moore said: “I want to thank everyone who helped us organise the walk and particularly the great many people who donated so generously to our cause.”

Councillor David Parker added: “It was a unique experience and great fun, and both of us have tremendous memories from our fantastic journey. Can I echo Michael’s words and thank everyone who donated so generously and helped us get to our final destination in one piece.”
