Judo coach Joe Harris and the members of his club at Bellshill YMCA have handed over the latest in a series of donations to charity.

Joe has coached at the club for over 50 years, having started there back in 1963.

During the year he organises various competitions and raffles and this year raised £400 which he and grandson Zac, also a club member, handed over to Yorkhill Hospital representative Lara McDonald.

Joe said: “Because I teach kids who are fit and healthy I think it’s important to educate them about children who aren’t as lucky as they are and raising money for Yorkhill helps do this.”
