New Innkeepers pull out all the stops for the Fishermen’s Mission
In the small village of Borgue in Dumfries and Galloway, new innkeepers, Michelle, Martin and Luke Thomson, have raised an amazing £1421.01 in their first year at the Borgue Hotel. Borgue consists of one Inn, a church, a Community Centre several dwellings at the cross roads and scattered farmhouses. From such a small population the figure above is absolutely amazing, as is Martin and Michelle’s generosity. On the first anniversary of opening the Borgue Hotel, strictly speaking an Inn, they invited the community to a barbecue. They made no charge, but asked people to put in a donation for the Fishermen’s Mission. Having enjoyed pork roast, burgers, hot dogs and various accompaniments a sum of £282.05 was raised to start off their fundraising for the coming year.
