STAFF at Langholm Co-op went the extra mile to raise money for a worthy cause and got a good work-out into the bargain.
They organised an in-store rowing machine challenge and a guess the bear’s name competition. The bear was kindly donated by Alan Miller of Yarns to Yearn For.
Adam Steel, Ryan Milligan, Daniel Winter, Aaron England and Shaun Stevens all took part.
For every £1 sponsored they had to go for one minute on the rowing machine and their efforts raised £370 from the raffle and the rowing.
The money will go to the Scottish Association for Mental Health, the Co-op’s charity of the year. Details about the charity are at https://www.samh.org
