CASH has been raised for a Balloch-based charity in the name of a rock legend.

Bay City Rollers member Alan Longmuir passed away last year, but friends, fans and family turned out to raise money for CHAS in his name.

The event, held in Bannockburn, consisted of live music, comedy, an auction and raffle and a three course meal.

Altogether, the group behind the event raised £5,000, some of which will go to support Robin House, a children's hospice in Balloch.

Gail Shackley was one of the instrumental figures behind organising the evening.

She said: "Organising this memorial event for Alan has been a privilege; we wanted to create an evening of music, happiness and fun to celebrate the life and legacy of an amazing, kind, gentle and fun-loving person. I think we got it right! Our committee comprised myself, from England, Suz Rostron from Philadelphia, USA, Lesley Stirrat, designer of the ‘Alan Longmuir Proud Son of Edinburgh’, and Gillan Watkins from Scotland.

“A raffle and auction of memorabilia were very generously supported on the night by all attendees and entertainment was provided by Craig Weir and Brian Gold, with McQ’s resident DJ Gary on hand to fill in too.

“We would like to thank Alan’s wife Eileen Longmuir who gave us her blessing to put this event on and who ended up doing as much as the rest of the committee in order to pull it off! Thanks also to Dave from McQ’s for all his help and support.”
