Best foot forward for Romford fundraising event
A ROMFORD line dance club has helped raise more than �1,000 for a brave youngster battling a brain tumour.
The Hills ‘n Toes club got their groove on to help raise vital funds for eight-year-old Alex Field, who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour earlier this year.
More than 70 people turned up for the special fundraising event, held at the Romford United Services and Social Club in Mawney Road, to help raise �1,020 towards costly medical treatment in the U.S.
Alex’s family, from Collier Row, now hope to raise �300,000 for cutting-edge treatment in the U.S.
Fundraiser Hillary Kurt-Webster said: “The generosity of their lovely friends who supported the evening was amazing - including that of those who kindly donated cash and raffle prizes even though they were unable to attend.
