More than £750 has been raised for charity by a son who has seen his dad go through months of treatment of for prostate cancer.

Steven Reynolds, 30, decided to put on a gig at Tweed Way Hall, Romford, with his band The Wannabe Shadows.

He said: “It was a disease I had heard very little about and suddenly there was this man who I looked up to all my life about to have to fight it.

“I felt pretty powerless not being able to do anything to help my Dad, someone who has done so much for me over the years so I decided the only thing I could do to help was to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.”

Steven’s dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer in January and has been undergoing radiotherapy at Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford.
