THE team at J’s Fitness in Cumnock raised a superb £1,200 for charity by staging a basketball tournament in 2017.

Jamie Wilson and Jamie McAllister run the gym in Glaisnock Street and organise a similar event every year, choosing a different sport, and charity.

One of the chosen charities was Alzheimer Scotland and the organisation’s community fundraiser, Amy McLaughlan, was delighted to pick up a cheque for £600.

Members of the summer club were there to lend a hand as the presentation ceremony took place.

Staff had arranged the tournament at Auchinleck Academy and the event was followed by a karaoke evening it Cumnock Juniors Social Club.

Mr Wilson said: “It was so amazing to to see everybody helping us such as local businesses, friends, family and clients donating — thank you everybody.”
