Lasswade Community Rugby Trust and the Children 1st charity benefitted by approximately £700 each from the annual Duck Race held at Pittendreich Burn, Bonnyrigg.

The ducks were duly launched by Councillor Derek Milligan ably assisted by the race organiser Suzie Fegen who had taken over from Bill Macdonald after a 20-year stint.

The burn was in full spate and in no time at all the ducks quickly made their way down and along the twists and turns of the water with a £100 voucher awaiting the eventual winner.

The Rugby Trust helps young and aspiring players from the local community.
