A celebration of the life of a well-known and respected big band, dance and jazz drummer, Reg Howard, raised more than £2,000 during an evening of live music at the Fleetwood Hesketh Sports and Social Club in Southport.

Friends and family came together for the event to raise funds for Heart4Heart, the charity set up in memory of Reg to buy defibrillators for local sports clubs. It is a charity which was set up in partnership with the club, where Reg was a committee member for over 17 years.
