An annual golf day has helped raise over £6k for a former Celtic star's charity.

The annual Lovell golf day at Dundonald Links, raised £6,734.68 for John Hartson's testicular cancer charity, the John Hartson Foundation.  

The former Hoops striker turned punter founded the charity, which raises around £100,000 each year, after being diagnosed with testicular cancer in his thirties.

This year's golf day was organised by Lovell Assistant buyer, Lee-Ann Reynolds,  which helped raise money through a charity auction, entry fees, and sponsorship. 

Prizes for the auction, including a four-ball at the prestigious Gleneagles, premium golf balls, and other golfing equipment, were donated by Lovell supply chain partners. 

Glasgow Times:

John Hartson said: "On behalf of my Foundation, I'd like to thank everyone at Lovell for their amazing efforts. It was a thoroughly enjoyable golf day. 

"It was a great team effort, but a special mention to Lee-Ann Reynolds for her hard work and attention to detail. 

"The money raised will help my Foundation keep up our ongoing aims of raising awareness about testicular cancer and also supporting many other charities such as The Beatson and Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity."
