PEEBLES and District Men's Shed were presented a cheque for over £500 last week from Bank of Scotland Peebles after charity cycle.

Bank staff took it in turns to hop on the static bike, donated by Forever Fit, and peddled away.

Bank customers donated a total of £538.62 to the cause. The bank will also contribute a further £500 pounds to the Men's Shed, bringing the overall donation to more than £1000.

Malcolm Bruce from the Shed said: "We intend to put this money towards fitting out a new social space for our members within our new home in Peebles Community Hub.

"We have found over the last year or so that a comfortable space where our members can enjoy a cup of tea and put the world to rights is just as, if not more important than, the workshop spaces we also plan to create.

"It will also mean we have a good space to discuss important issues like social isolation and men’s health, which Men’s Sheds across the country are tackling head on."
