Borders Talking Newspaper has an extra £1000 since Allen Turner took on the challenge to see how many times he could hit a punch bag over a two minute period.

People had to guess the number of hits - which turned out to be 307 - and those nearest were prize winners. Allen is partially sighted and has benefited from the free service for visually impaired Borderers run by volunteers. Contact Wendy on 01361 884206 or office@btn.org.uk.
