Border children 'walking for water'

School children in the Borders are walking six kilometres whilst carrying water, to raise money for charity.

Pupils from Philiphaugh Community School and Lilliesleaf Primary are taking part in the national Rotakids event.

Ten Border Rotary Clubs are hoping to raise £21,000 through sponsorship and grants.

The money will be sent to the Katete Community in Zambia, where children carry four litres of water for six kilometres every day.

The money will be spent on building bore holes and installing a pump to give communities access to clean drinking water.
