A CLUB which celebrates everything that is glamorous about the 1930s has raised £800 for a charity which provides transport for trips by military veterans.

People dressed to the nines for The Coco club’s Valentine Ball at the Corn Exchange, Devizes, on February 15 and took part in a raffle for a picture donated by artist John Hammond.

Winner Angela Gaffney said she would add a personal donation to top up the charity cash.

Ian Pieri, whose late father Ted Pieri, a Second World veteran attended many commemorations on the continent as a guest of the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans, accepted the donation.

Mr Pieri, said: “The Taxi Charity is totally reliant on donations to continue to do the amazing work they do supporting our veterans and I was delighted to attend The Coco Club Ball and accept this fantastic donation.”

The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans was formed in Fulham in 1948 to work for the benefit of veterans.
