SOUTHSIDE Wannabees have handed over a generous charity cheque to help a ward of the Southern General hospital.

The Cardonald College team - aiming to promote the area’s up-and-coming musical talent - raised the money through a fundraising concert in memory of Clarkston girl Enya Doohan, who died suddenly in 2008 aged just five years old.

The Enya Doohan Appeal was started by the young girl’s family, and gig organiser Christina Doherty was inspired by their grand total - £58,000 - to put on an event of her own.

The gig - which included sets from The Toi, Ravena, Myles Leggatt, The Apparells and Carly McLaughlin - raised £450 for the cause, and Christina thanked all involved in making the event a “complete success”.
