A LOCAL scooter club put the wheels in motion to fundraise in memory of a much-loved member who sadly died last year.

The Clyde Panthers celebrated their 40th anniversary with a special event in the Port Glasgow Town Hall after it was delayed for a year due to the pandemic.

On the evening, funds were raised for Euan's Cause, a charity set up by the parents of 18-month-old tot Euan Clark after he passed away whilst waiting on a life-saving heart transplant.

Members of the club - founded during the Mod revival in the early 1980s - chose the charity as one of their own, Colin McKay, who passed away suddenly last April, had planned to take on a fundraising challenge in aid of the good cause.

His son Ross decided to go ahead and do the challenge in honour of his late dad, and the club wanted to do their bit too and show their support for the charity.

They raised £1,038 in Colin's memory thanks to lots of kind pledges.

Club members got together with Euan's dad, Robert Clark, to present his charity with the funds.

Clyde Panthers chairman Mick Bradley said: "The club members decided there was no better place for the funds raised at our anniversary night than to be donated to the charity of Colin's choosing, Euan's Cause.

"We wanted to commemorate Colin's life as part of the celebration.

"We'd like to thank Dallas Carpets for sponsoring the event, the Blow Up DJs for offering their services for free, Derek Watters at Gourock Golf Club for donating raffle prizes and Davy Hoy of Image LED for the banner and trophies.

"We'd also like to say thanks to The Gift for the great entertainment on the night and all those who came to support the event."
