A group of DJs are set to be up to scratch to help a local teenager diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Last year the Reformer told how Stonelaw High pupil Jack Flexney was found to have two cancerous tumours after a hospital check-up.

Support for the popular teenager came from throughout the local community, with school pals organising a charity head shave, a football tournament organised for him and a barbers holding a 24 hour long haircutting service.

Now Cambuslang pub the County Inn will hold a GBX night this Saturday, with a host of top Scottish DJ’s slated to appear.

One of the DJ’s, Tam Graham, was involved with Jack’s old football club, Cambuslang FA, and now coaches with Cambuslang Rangers.

Event for Jack Flexney

The DJ was keen to do whatever he could to help out Jack.

He said : “The idea came after sitting down with the County Inn - they’ve had a good relationship with Cambuslang FA over the years and wanted to do something to help out Jack.

“I DJ there anyway, so having a club night seemed the most obvious way of raising funds.

“I knew Jack a little as I was involved with the FA when he was there, and I was in the same class at school as his sister.

“We just want to give something back to the family at this time - obviously cancer is horrible with anyone but there is something particularly bad when it’s someone so young.”

Appearing on the bill are Tam, Michael Smith, Zander Nation, Marc Mercer and several others.

And Tam, who has been DJing locally for the past three years, says there was plenty of support as soon as the special club night was announced.

He added: “Everyone has given up their usual fees to play, which we are really grateful for.

“We want to pack the place out, have a great night and help Jack and his family out at the same time.”

The night will run from 7pm to 1am, across two rooms and tickets are £10. They can be bought from the County Inn directly.
