George Anderson, a Borders General Hospital (BGH) Participation Group Volunteer has raised the grand total of £410 to be shared among three NHS Borders endowment funds: heart, stroke and palliative care. George, pictured with his dog Cindy, invited guests to his 70th birthday party in Coldstream and requested they bring donations for a local charity in lieu of gifts. Explaining his motivation George said: “My parents were both cared for by NHS Borders Stroke and Palliative Care Teams and they both suffered from heart complaints

“I was their full time carer for 11 years and it is recognition of the care they received in the BGH that lead to this donation and my involvement in voluntary groups.”
