A TRIBUTE night headlined by the Wee County's famous Elvis impersonator has raised nearly £2,500 for a specialist Alloa school.

Johnny Lee Memphis headlined the event at Stirling Rugby Club, which raised £2,463 for Scottish Autism's New Struan School.

The event was organised by teachers from the school and the funds will go towards a multi-medium space for pupils, allowing them to learn a variety of life skills.

Johnny Lee, a renowned Elvis Presley impersonator, put on a captivating performance to pay tribute to the King of Rock 'n' Roll.

But it was New Struan pupil Alfie Munro who stole the show when he was invited on stage to sing The Gambler as the last song of the evening.

Mhairi McCabe, a classroom assistant at New Struan and sister of the artist, said: “I would like to thank everyone who came along to help us to raise so much for New Struan School.

"Thank you to staff members who helped on the night, to everyone who donated raffle prizes, and to my brother Johnny for his exceptional performance combining his musical and comic talent to perfection."

The raffle at the event was followed by an auction of rugby and football memorabilia.

Karen Wilson, income generation lead for Scottish Autism, added: “Congratulations to Mhairi and the organisers of the night for all their time and efforts putting this excellent event on and raising almost £2,500 towards a new interactive space for pupils at New Struan.

"Given all the external factors at the minute including the cost of living crisis, the generosity of those who attended is heart-warming and it is much appreciated by everyone at Scottish Autism."
