The Common People event was held in June at The Pioneer Club to raise money for Centre 33 St Albans.

DJs Colin Toms and Ed the Saint, who are also co-organisers, presented the cheque to the charity last week.

Organiser Jon Prayer said: "I am on their roster of volunteers. We look at local places that need money rather than the bigger charities.

"Centre 33 is small, it's local and that's what we were looking for."
