SIGNED memorabilia from stars of sport and music is up for grabs in a raffle to support kids with cancer.

Fundraiser Mark McGregor is organising the money-spinner with staff at the Old Market Pub in Mexborough, with the winning tickets to be drawn this weekend.

Mark assembled some of the town’s most famous names as he and wife Claire handed over a signed boxing glove, a copy of Saxon’s Wheels of Steel record autographed by guitarist Graham Oliver and a pair of darts signed by Dennis Priestley, the town’s champion darts player.

Tickets are available for £1 a strip and prizes include a free MOT, free pizza, goodie bags, a meal at the Old Market, and a free birthday greeting from the Weekender.
