As with all organisations, the activities of Scottish Borders Versus Arthritis will need to cease for the time being. That means the rescheduling of all Support Group activities, the Branch Coffee Morning, Tesco Collection, Plant Sale and the AGM. Once we come out the other side of this epidemic we can reschedule and can plan ahead.

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 2018, our 45th anniversary, more than £11,000 was given to the charity, thanks to the generosity of local people.


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.
