The Ayr and District Pool League has raised thousands of pounds for the Ayrshire Hospice as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations. 

League members collected an amazing £2,510 from a special Singles Championship event. 

It was the first time that the championship was named in honour of their late, great friend, Graham McKeown.

The hospice fundraising team was invited down to 8 Ball Club in Ayr to meet the players along with Graham’s wife, Jan and their family.

A hospice spokesperson said: "Thank you to everyone who was involved with the event.

"The framed shirt's presented to the McKeown family and the Ayr 8ball Club in remembrance of G-Man were a heartfelt tribute to their beloved friend."
