The Coco Club raffles John Hammond original painting to raise £800 for the Taxi Charity

John Hammond donates painting to raise money for Taxi Charity

A charity raffle has been more successful than organisers ever could have imagined, with an incredible £800 raised for a worthy cause.

To help raise funds for Taxi Charity for Military Veterans, renowned artist John Hammond donated a piece of his original artwork.

The piece was given to The Coco Club in Devizes, Wiltshire to raffle for the charity which is also close to their hearts.

The raffle took place at the Valentines Ball on Saturday 15 February at The Corn Exchange, where Angela Gaffney was the lucky winner of the picture.

Also present at the ball was Ian Pieri, whose late father, Ted Pieri, a WWII veteran, attended many WWII commemorations on the continent as well as day trips in London and the South East, as a guest of the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans.

Ian 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 on behalf of the charity."
