Freddie rocks Romford

More than 200 people enjoyed a sensational night of music as a Queen tribute band rocked a Romford shopping centre and raised £3,500 for a hospice.

Saint Francis Hospice, which helps around 4,000 people affected by life limiting illness every year, organised the entertaining evening in which lead singer Paul Jackson (pictured) stepped into the shoes of the legendary Freddie Mercury.

"It was a terrific night out and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it," said Tony Hatch, 64, who was there with his family and members of bowling clubs in Romford and Hornchurch. 

"I like Queen music and this was a great opportunity to do what I like and support a fantastic charity. The lead singer was great. Not only was the music and singing amazing but he was a great personality."

Katy Woodgate, Events and Community Manager at the hospice said: "The night was a great success and we have to say a huge "thank you" to Paul and the Queen B band for making it such a fun night."

"We hope to see more faces at our future music events including our Michael Buble tribute night in Warley on Friday 13th November."
