At our recent AGM we learned that a total of 205 home starter packs were made up in the past 12 months, helping almost 300 folk right across the Scottish Borders to settle into their new accommodation.

We have received generous funding awards from Radio Borders Cash for Kids and the Robertson Trust, as well as donations from individual supporters.

Our volunteers love the new premises at Tweedmills and despite the Covid restrictions, generous donations of goods from the public continued whenever possible.

We couldn’t do any of this without our team of dedicated volunteers and the support from you – your generosity and helping to spread the word about what Fresh Start is doing. Thank you all!

After a break of two years, we’re pleased to be holding our Fresh Start Borders AGM 2022 at our premises – Unit 9B, Tweed Mills, Dunsdale Rd, Selkirk, TD7 5DZ – on Wednesday 25 May at 7pm. All welcome.

From Dunsdale Rd, turn in at Lochcarron/Tweed Mills Business Park; we are on the 2nd row of units behind Lochcarron.

We’re delighted to be able to thank our Web Host and Domain Registrar, Kualo, for agreeing to provide future hosting of this website for free, under their Free Charity Hosting by Kualo arrangement.

We have upgraded our website, replacing the fixed-width theme with a new fluid layout that should make it easier to view and interact with on mobile devices, particularly smartphones. It also means that these news items can be subscribed to by RSS.
