Around 150 people attended the Stradbroke and District Royal British Legion’s branch concert to celebrate the 86th birthday of the Queen.

The concert was held at Stradbroke Business and Enterprise College with the Ipswich Hospital Band, under their musical director Peter Gray, supplying the music.

Sixteen Royal British Legion standards were present and took part in a drum head service conducted by Suffolk County Chaplain Rev Richard Stretch.

More than £400 was raised on the draw and the star prize given by the Queen, of a family ticket to the state rooms of Buckingham Palace was won by Mandy Adlington of Thetford.

All profits will be given to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, which will in turn be spent on welfare work for service veterans and their dependents of all ages.
