METAL detectorists from across Scotland have helped a Borders charity strike it rich.

The annual metal detecting rally, held by Metal Detecting in Scotland, was held in the Borders for the third time.

And once again had a high turnout of enthusiasts.

The detecting rally included a raffle with a variety of prizes spanning from metal detectors and other equipment to luxury items.

And all money raised was donated to a local charity.

A whopping £1,200 was raised this year from the raffle alone and was donated to the Hawick based Jumbulance,

The charity helps adults and children with disabilities to maximise their quality of life by providing social and travel opportunities.

Colin Irvine from Metal Detecting Scotland said: "We are always looking at ways to involve the local community and use local businesses as we are always so generous and grateful for the service and hospitality provided for us when hosting such events."

All finds made at the event were recorded with the Scottish Treasure Trove Unit in Edinburgh to ensure the preservation of Scottish Borders history.
