Hope Church, in The Scaurs, held a ladies’ brunch and a clothes swap on Saturday which raised money for Doctors Without Borders and the Migrant Offshore Aid Station, two charities which are on the frontline of Syrian refugee relief efforts.

People donated second-hand clothes and paid £3 to enter the event, where every item of clothing cost just £1 to buy.

Tasty treats were on offer at the ladies’ brunch and a total of £535 was raised on Saturday, with more donations yet to be counted from Sunday’s church services.
