CLUBBERS helped raise more than £2,500 for Stand Against Violence during a weekend event at Mambo in Taunton.

Tom Phillips, from the charity, and Mambo's Rob MacDonald arranged two nights of music outdoors with the Kiss FM duo Rickie and Melvin, DJ Pioneer and DJ Swerve.

Rob said: “It was a fantastic weekend. The local community came out in force again to support such a great charity.”

Tom Phillips and Adam Fouracre, who founded the charity after his brother, Lloyd, was murdered in an unprovoked attack in Taunton, said: “We thank the public for their kind donations and hope they all enjoyed the event we planned.

“It’s great to have famous DJs performing and supporting an ever growing charity.

“The money will continue to support the ongoing project to reduce violence on our streets.”
