Tribute has been paid to “legendary” Mary Bellingham who spent more than 50 years working in the pub trade in Bellshill and Mossend.
The Bellshill woman died after a short illness and her sister Rena Lilley spoke today as she helped present a cheque to a cancer charity.
It followed an event that Mary organised shortly before she died.
Rena said: “My sister was the oldest bouncer in Bellshill! Young people called her Mary the Legend. They had so much respect for her.”
A cheque for £1600 was presented to the the Les Hoey Dreammaker Foundation at the Belmill Hotel where Mary managed the Platform 3 nightclub.
See the Bellshill Speaker, out on Wednesday, for more tributes to Mary.
