Youth marching band Romford Drum and Trumpet Corps were today gifted money by a Dagenham man who spent his Halloween fundraising for the charity.

Andy Brown, whose children Georgina and Charlie play in the band, decided to do raise money for the charity - and so last night asked those posing for pictures with his annual Halloween display to donate.

“The evening was a resounding success,” said Andy.

Andy, who in previous years has dressed as a nurse and a witch, this year dressed up as a rather convincing Alice Russell.

Andy does his Halloween display every year just for the fun of it - but this time round decided he would try and benefit the charity.

In October, Romford Drum and Trumpet Corps were left “gutted” when their 60th anniversary celebration, which was to take place in Gibraltar, was cancelled when Monarch folded. Their flights were cancelled - costing them an estimated £7,000.

Andy raised £60.
