Soldiers take to nightclub stage to support Help for Heroes
Three serving soldiers shared their singing talents at an East London nightclub before being presented with a cheque for Help for Heroes on November 30.
The Soldiers group, made up of Sergeant Major Gary Chilton, Sergeant Richie Maddocks and Lance Corporal Ryan Idzi, belted out hits including Mustang Sally at Secrets table dancing club in East Smithfield.
Nightclub owner Stephen Less was then able to present the group with a �2000 cheque, a donation of the club’s profits from the evening.
A further donation will be made to the charity, which helps British servicemen and women wounded in conflict, from staff’s tips in the previous week.
The threesome, who also performed With A Little Help From My Friends, were cheered on by loyal customers, former X Factor singer Ruth Lorenzo and Darren Barker, the British, Commonwealth and European middleweight boxing champion.

“Both have been a big success and we will therefore continue to organise as many charity events at this club as possible.
