A community pub is set to host a series of fundraising events for a children’s charity.

The King William IV pub in Chigwell has confirmed it will be the base for events over the Christmas period in aid of The Dream Factory, which grants wished to young people with serious illnesses.

Pub Manager Lucy Murphy said: "I'm delighted to have made this link with Avril and The Dream Factory.

"I look toward to working together to make a difference to some truly amazing and inspirational lives."
