A superfan of the pop rock and jazz funk band Level 42, has raised £500 for Saint Francis Hospice, with a little help from some kind-hearted friends.

Julian Hall, 52, who has seen the band 59 times, decided to sell his valued memorabilia and help out the Havering-atte-Bower hospice.

On eBay, he decided to sell several items such as signed guest passes and drumsticks, as well as more unusually, some thumb tape used by the bassist Mark King at Brentwood Festival.

Julian said: “A couple who got engaged at the festival bought it.

“They’ve told me they’re going to use it at their engagement ring. I think they’re joking but I’m not sure!”

Julian raised £240 initially, but this was doubled by his employer, Delaney’s Estate Agent, in Hornchurch, and a friend gave him a final £20 to make a total of £500.

He said: “I’m so pleased, it’s mad!

“The fan who bought the signed poster won it for £19 but donated £30 to the hospice.

“He has also offered to send me a rare record I don’t own.”
