MORE than £4,000 was raised at a fundraiser dedicated to the memory of fallen British soldier Drummer Lee Rigby at the Circus Tavern.
Soldiers from the Woolwich Barracks – outside of which Drummer Rigby was killed in May – attended the event on Saturday.
Dagenham Girl Pipers were among 17 acts who performed for free on the night. The Pipers, led by Sheila Hatcher, from Grays, opened and closed the night.
Music was provided by the likes of ska band Dualers and female trio the Enlights.
At the end of the evening Major Les Carr was presented with a cheque for £4,188 made out to Jack Rigby, Lee’s son, who turns three this week.
Organiser Bill Nicholson said: “Thanks to all who attended this great evening.”
