Dancers rock the world !!

Dancers from Jedburgh, Kelso, Duns and Melrose all performed together on an international stage in Glasgow last weekend.

Hip hop dancers from M-Pulsive Dance School based in Kelso qualified for the international dance competition last year and were delighted to perform at the Clyde Auditorium last weekend.

The teams have fundraised for this trip for the past 6 months, each of the dancers and their families would like to thank all our sponsors particularly Blackhill Windfarm and Duns Rotary for supporting the 6 Berwickshire based dancers.

Dance School Principal , Michelle Douglas said that both the competition squads have worked incredibly hard over the past year and showcased their work exceptionally well. Although we did not reach the finals the opportunity to dance on a world class stage, to experience such amazing performances and take part in some very technical and great fun workshops has inspired and motivated all of us for the year ahead.

UDO (United Dance Organisation) is a highly prestigious dance organisation attracting competitors from countries as far away as Japan and Australia, so M-Pulsive were honoured to be representing the East Of Scotland .

The funding that we received from Blackhill Windfarm and Duns Rotary, allowed the Berwickshire Dancers to travel by coach with the rest of their teams mates, attend the UDO World Dance competition , stay overnight in a hotel and a small contribution towards costumes for the event

Coach Contribution £180.00

Hotel Contribution £600.00

Competition Attendance £560.00

Many Thanks again for your support and allowing our children this amazing opportunity .

Duns & District Parishes received £2,000 in June 2017.  These funds were used to replace the flood lights outside the church.  Work had already been carried out to repair the external fabric of the church, which left the flood lighting all that was left to be done.

Funds Received - £500

The Rotary Club of Duns received £500 in April 2017.  This funding was used to help fund a defibrillator and cabinet positioned outside the old post office in the square.  This can be used by any member of the public.  An App has since been created to allow people to locate the position of all defibrillators and more specifically the one closest to you.

Friends of Duns Primary School

Year Completed: 

Funds received - £3,000.00

Friends of Duns Primary School received £3,000 in December 2017.  These funds where used to help furnish the new library at Duns Primary School.  When the school moved to its new premises, in the old High School building, the library was left with limited shelving which was not fit for purpose.  From the start the children were heavily involved in setting up the library and used the funds received from BWCF to purchase shelving, seating, tables and additional books.

Thanks from everyone in FDPS.
