A GREENOCK boxing champion and a former Morton favourite have raised £2,000 for seriously ill youngsters.

Fighter Frankie Monkhouse and ex-Ton winger Kevin Twaddle took on a half marathon for Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity.

Kevin's daughter Hope, now five, spent weeks in the intensive care unit at the hospital - now known as the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People - just after she was born.

Frankie said: "We're thrilled to have raised so much money."
