They also presented a cheque for £121 to the Magic Wand Appeal the result of a 1960s soul night at the Half Moon and Spread Eagle pub in Micheldever.

Club member Adrian Hunt said: “We like to do something for the community and to show the children that although they are in hospital they are not being forgotten.”

The club is now based at The Welcome pub in Bishopstoke.
