CELEBRITIES from the world of sport and TV have signed up for a local fundraising night in Clarkston to help British soldiers injured in Afghanistan.

Graeme Souness and the BBC’s Nick Robinson have agreed to take part as phone-a-friend guests.

The event is being organised by East Renfrewshire MP Jim Murphy to raise money for British soldiers injured in Afghanistan.

The Celebrity Quiz night will see the Rangers and Scotland legend asking the football round, and Nick Robinson posing the news questions.

Other well-known names also look set to join them for the Saturday, April 13 Clarkston Halls event.

The night is organised as the main fundraiser in Mr Murphy’s London marathon fundraising effort to help soldiers who have suffered life changing injuries.

He told The Extra: “I’m delighted that Graeme Souness and Nick Robinson have agreed to be at the end of the phone as guest quizmasters. This promises to be a unique night for a great cause.

“It will be a night with a difference and can help make a real change in the lives of some of the soldiers who have sacrificed so much for our country. It’s a way of East Renfrewshire saying thank you and supporting them.”

Tickets for the special night are only £5 and can be booked by calling 07914330136 or emailing murphymarathon2013@hotmail.co.uk.
