Pool players have raised £200 for Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of well known local book shop owner Kelvin Hunt.

Kelvin died in June last year at the age of 60 after a long battle with cancer.

His brother Roger organised a pool tournament and raffle, at Bar 8 in July.

The Scotch Doubles event, playing for the Kelvin Hunt Memorial Cup, saw 16 players taking part and was won by Mark Winham and Paul Curtis.

Roger is grateful to Bar 8 and everyone who supported the event, including The Merchants Inn, Seven Stars, Romna restaurant and Quigleys.

Kelvin used to sponsor Roger in his pool career playing for England.
