Race night will help to raise cash for charity.

As well as Stephen's plan to run the London Marathon, Jacqueline's family are also holding a race night in Paisley tomorrow evening to raise awareness and funds for Sarcoma UK.

It takes place at Powerleague in Blackhall Street, at 7.30pm, and prizes include a PS350 photoshoot, PS50 of Ladbrokes vouchers, a signed Rangers top, a tour for four people at Celtic Park, bottles of whisky and flowers fromWith Love Flowers, and more.

Meanwhile, a hospitality table for six people at a post-split Celtic match will be auctioned off on Facebook.

Approximately 15 people are diagnosed with sarcoma every day in the UK, accounting for 5,300 people each year.

With around 100 different sub-types of sarcoma, the cancer most commonly affects the arms, legs, and trunk, but can also appear in the stomach, intestines and behind the abdomen and female reproductive system.

The Sarcoma UK charity says it is vital patients are referred to a specialist sarcoma team as early as possible, and that survival is more likely if the cancer is diagnosed early.

However, further research needs to be undertaken to understand how the cancers develop and spread.

Tickets for the race night, which cost PS5, will be available on the door, or you can contact Jim Burns on 07856 223 411.
