A SURPRISE party organised to celebrate an 80th birthday raised hundreds of pounds for charity.
Secretive Margot Speller organised the event to mark her husband Roy’s birthday.
Mrs Speller, who lives off Ipswich Road, Colchester, told him he was meeting up with his brother Ron.
But when they got there, he was greeted by 60 members of his family and friends who donated money to charity.
