Alexander Brown, who owns the Bronx Boxing Gym in Tranent, opened a justgiving page to “give back” in Welsh’s memory, while helping to alleviate some of the financial strain of funeral charges on close family members.

Mr Brown recently penned a gritty debut novel entitled ‘Hit Me’, shedding a light on the Capital’s grim and terrifying underworld.

“After dedicating his life to raising money for charities and helping the youth of Edinburgh, I would now like to give back in his memory and help ease the financial pressure on his family at this hard time.”

The funding drive has since attracted more than a dozen donors, raising hundreds of pounds in the first few hours of the appeal going live on Thursday afternoon.
