A DINNER and dance evening to mark the Poppy Appeal will take place later this month.

Every year the The Royal British Legion raises money through its appeal for current and ex-servicemen and their families.

This year's event in the borough will be held at Walthamstow Town Hall in Forest Road, on October 28, from 7pm.

There will be a three-course meal and entertainment from Todd Miller and the Joe Loss Showband.

Tickets cost £35 each and for a table of 10 people it will be reduced to £33 each.

For further information contact the Chingford branch of the Royal British Legion on 020 8529 2688.
