There were no surprises with the generosity shown by the Border community on October 2.
"It was an amazing effort, but to be honest it isn't surprising given the generosity of our community," director Jacqui Partington said.
"A lot of people either know someone who has reached out to us or have done so themselves.
"With all our fundraising events cancelled until further notice this will go a long way."
