A Plymouth Argyle fan has taken it upon himself to host a fundraising event to raise funds for the Leyton Orient regeneration fund.

Closet Vinyl owner Dan Magill is set to DJ at Leytonstone’s Northcote Arms from when the pub opens at 12noon until it closes at 1am.

On the day they will be running a raffle, a football quiz, games for the kiddies, song requests and more.

When asked why he decided to help out for the fundraiser entitled ‘Journey in a Tijuana Taxi’ Magill said: “The Northcote Arms have a lot of Orient fans who go their on match days.

“We run an event on the first Saturday of the calender month. The landlady Tuesday Roberts got us together and asked if we had any fundraising ideas for the Regeneration Fund.

“I am a football fan myself so I thought I would see what I can do to help in any way I can.”

The 44-year-old runs his own business of having the equipment required to host your own vinyl party.

The Leyton Orient Fans Trust (LOFT) set up the fund to use it when it was deemed necessary but it was never to be used to cover current owner Francesco Becchetti’s debt.

Football fans have came together in the wake of Orient’s plight with ex-players donating memorabilia to gain as much money as possible for the second oldest club in London.

Mr Magill, who lives in Chingford said: “Everyone is together on this. Plymouth Argyle went through it a few years ago and there was a lot of support from Orient at that time.

“We all remember that. We do not know how much money the event will raise but we should be able to get at least one hundred to two hundred pounds or so.”

The fund has currently reached £120,165 of their £250,000 target.
