Glen Ragou, from Littleton Road, Salford, represented England and travelled the world playing his favourite sport before he was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2014.

Glen spent his final week as a patient at St Ann’s Hospice in Little Hulton before he died last December, shortly before his 47th birthday.

More than £3,000 has been raised so far for the hospice as a thank you for the care he received.

Most donations came from a fun day at Cheetham Hill Squash Club where Glen played with distinction during an illustrious 35-year career which included spells at clubs in France and Jersey.

Son Louis (24) has followed in dad’s footsteps by playing squash to county standard.

Glen was a fantastic squash player and was very well known on the circuit. He was such a character on the court where he always had a great sense of humour. His family are extremely proud of him and want to thank everyone for their support so that his memory lives on. Glen only spent a short time at St Ann’s Hospice but the staff there were wonderful and did everything possible for him. Judy Ragou, Glen's sister
