Tickets on sale for Merryweather benefit
A MUSICAL event at the Theatre on the Bay next Sunday will be in aid of Andrew Merryweather, paralysed during a late-night brawl outside a petrol station in Claremont three years ago.
Merryweather, now confined to a wheelchair, will also host
Footsteps to Freedom, with Roelof Colyn, of A Handful of Keys fame, at the keyboard.
Two former Reddam House pupils, Joel Thackwray and Liam Hechter, are defending a civil claim for R14.5 million arising from the incident. Thackwray, Hechter and four others were acquitted of the attempted murder of Merryweather in the Wynberg Regional Court in 2008.
The show starts at 5pm. To book call 021 531 8261/084 300 6388 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets cost R110 and include snacks. There will be a cash bar.
