A PARTY to mark what would have been the Kray Twins' 76th birthday raised £2,000 for charity.

The bash on October 24 was thrown in honour of eight-year-old Taylor Shirley who has been battling leukaemia for the past year.

Around 200 people attended the party at the Worship bar in Finsbury to raise cash for cancer charity Children with Leukaemia.

Former Kray henchman Chris Lambrianou attended with brother Jimmy, Taylor's granddad, and although Taylor was not well enough to go to the party himself, mum Sian and dad Paul.

The family has already raised a total of £10,000 for the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where Taylor receives his treatment and cancer charity CLIC Sargent.

Jimmy handed the cheque for £2,000 over to Children with Leukaemia earlier this month.
