Birdboxes for NHS Borders COVID-19 Pandemic Response

St. Mary's School has now raised £1,430 (and counting) for the NHS Borders' COVID-19 Pandemic Response.

The following link is to the latest front-page report in the Border Telegraph.


The 150 birdboxes have been made by Mr Rawson, Fergus, Hector and Lochie during the lockdown period to a simple design developed by Form 7 in the Lent Term.

They make extensive use of recycled and repurposed materials like bicycle inner tubes from Hardies Bikes for the hinges and straps.
