Tick­ets on sale for Mer­ry­weather ben­e­fit

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOOD GAMES -

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: pat­ty­pan@iafrica.com. Tick­ets cost R110 and in­clude snacks. There will be a cash bar.
