Robert Goodwin (76) was well enough to attend the event at Birkenshaw Sports Barn on Saturday.

Glasgow-born Robert lives in Birmingham but is well known in Birkenshaw through regular visits to see his daughter Annemarie and her family. During a visit this summer he became ill with a brain tumour. He is now living at Annemarie’s home where medical staff tend to him daily.

The money raised will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.
