Primary Pupils sock it to 'em

Primary schools from across the Borders took part in Socktober Day recently – a fundraising event put together by the team at Radio Borders for children’s charity Cash for Kids.

Pupils wore their most wacky socks and Radio Borders mascots, Bobby the Beaver and Courage the Cat, paid a visit to each school.

A fantastic £1025 was raised for Cash for Kids.

Schools taking part were St Margaret’s (Galashiels), Ettrick, Kirkhope, Yarrow, St Josephs (Selkirk), Ancrum, Edenside (Kelso), Wilton (Hawick) and Kingsland (Peebles) and St Margaret’s (Hawick).

Austeja Vezeviciute from St Margaret’s in Galashiels won the ‘best pair of socks’ and the ‘best class of socks’ was awarded to Yarrow Primary School.
