Welcome

Scottish Borders Versus Arthritis.

all of us against arthritis

Formerly known as Arthritis Research Melrose Branch, we are now Scottish Borders Versus Arthritis – the Scottish Borders branch of  Versus Arthritis.  In 2017, Arthritis Care and Arthritis Research UK joined forces so that we could achieve more for people with arthritis. In September 2018, we became Versus Arthritis. Alongside volunteers, healthcare professionals, researchers and friends, we do everything we can to push back against arthritis. Together, we’ll continue to develop breakthrough treatments, campaign relentlessly for arthritis to be seen as a priority, and support each other whenever we need it.

Any ideas from you will be very welcome – contact the Branch Secretary to discuss your plans at info@scottishbordersversusarthritis.org or by telephone – leave a message (Tues-Fri) on 01896 754041. Please give your telephone number either in an email or message so that Isobel King can get in touch with you.

In the Scottish Borders, Scottish Borders Versus Arthritis (previously the Melrose branch) runs a range of events throughout the year to raise funds for the charity. In 2016, more than £9,000 was given to the charity, thanks to the generosity of local people.
