Hundreds of pounds have been raised for a Royal British Legion's poppy appeal with a community barbecue.
Friends, neighbours and ex-servicemen and women gathered at the weekend to the event organised by Councillor Stephanie Nunn and Councillor Barry Mugglestone, who is the chairman of the Elm Park Royal British Legion, based in Maylands Avenue, Hornchurch.
Everyone who attended the day enjoyed the delicious food, played games, took part in a sweepstake for the World Cup as well as a raffle.
More than £540 was raised for the worthy cause.
Stephanie said: “We were very pleased to see so many of our family, friends and neighbours turn up for the barbecue, to play silly games and be so generous in what they gave.
“Many thanks to them all.
“We’re now all looking forward to the World Cup to see who wins the sweepstake.”
