Rovers star Craig Conway has raised more than £2,000 for charity after auctioning off his chopping skills.

The midfielder, who is also a trained barber, cut the hair of six lucky supporters at Form Barbershop in Clitheroe in April.

And last week, Conway announced just how much he'd managed to raise for the East Lancashire Hospice, for whom he is player ambassador.

Conway said: "It was a great day obviously doing the hair cuts.

"I visited the hospice earlier in the season and seeing the work they did it was brilliant.

"I just wanted to do something for them and being able to cut hair, it was a straightforward option.

"The day went well and we raised a lot of money.

"We got the figure the other day and it was £2,216.63."

The Scottish international originally set himself a target of £2,000 and set up a GoFundMe page to boost donations.

He added: "I set the target at £2,000 so it was brilliant to reach that and a tiny little bit towards what they need to raise."

The East Lancashire Hospice needs around £2.5m of voluntary donations a year to run, and support from fundraising events such as this helps them to continue with the good work they do.

A spokesperson for the Hospice said: "We have really loyal support from the local community and with Craig being our ambassador he has gone above and beyond which is fantastic.

"To take time out from his schedule for the Hospice is great and the feedback has been amazing; he's done so much and we think he's got the fundraising bug.

"Thank you to everyone who took part and to Form Barbershop too, who also helped to reach that total by contributing £1,176.63 from fundraising on the day."
