Murdered soldier Lee Rigby's son has not received any of the funds raised in his name
Gary Gardner allegedly spent the funds to make a single with his band, according to The Mirror.
Describing himself as a music, media and event specialist, Gardner manages a band called ‘Together in Harmony’ which he claims is a “group of up and coming artists from all over the UK, supporting many different charitable causes”.

Gary Gardner held events to raise money for a trust for Lee Rigby's son
Gardner, from Leicester, organised truck-pulls and charity events to raise money, claiming it would go towards a trust fund for six-year-old Jack.
The events, held at Melbourne and Market Harborough, were attended by Lee’s grieving family, including his widow Rebecca.
However, it has since been claimed that the youngster is yet to see a penny of that money.
Jack lost his dad when he was just two years old
Leicester Police said the 54-year-old is due to appear in court next week charged with three counts of fraud and is accused of abusing his position as a trustee.
Jack was aged two when his dad was brutally murdered in broad daylight by Muslim extremists Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale.
