Alix said: "I’m lost for words, as I never expected the Clan to raise that much.

"That total is amazing, the support and generosity on the night from everyone was unmatched.

"I know the charity will be so grateful to receive that amount as it allows them to continue helping people in the same boat as me."

Glasgow Times:

Gareth Chalmers, managing director of Braehead Arena added: "Alix is well known to the Clan family and we were shocked to hear about her cancer diagnosis.

"But she has shown incredible bravery by launching her fundraising campaign to raise money for Lymphoma Action while going through chemotherapy with after-effects that can be quite debilitating.

"The best way for us to salute Alix and her courage was to help her collect as much money as possible for the charity and our fans have been extremely generous to raise so much money for a good cause."
