The money was raised after the Romford and District branch of the Royal Marines Association stood with buckets at Tesco in Gallows Corner, Romford.

Les Wright, 63, the branch’s chairman, said: “We salute all the people who were so generous in their support from the gentleman who donated £100 to the little lad who donated his 50p pocket money and everyone in between.

“We are busy all through the year but this is a particularly busy time for us.”

The money raised - £2,192 – will go to the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund who help wounded servicemen and women and their families and provide money for ongoing projects.
