They’re rock­ing for cancer sup­port

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY - BY JAY GRENBY

A ROCK ’n’ roll tribute band com­prised of St Al­bans United Sy­n­a­gogue mem­bers helped to raise more than £12,000 for cancer-re­lated char­i­ties when they topped the bill at a con­cert in north Lon­don.

The Brick­ets, named be­cause they live in Bricket Wood, near St Al­bans, are reg­u­lar per­form­ers at shul so­cials.

Pro­ceeds from the con­cert were split be­tween Chai Cancer Care and the Hospice of St Fran­cis in Berkham­sted, where Mar­i­lyn Ver­rey — wife of the band’s rhythm gui­tarist Allan Ver­rey — passed away last Novem­ber, aged 62, after a long bat­tle with cancer.

The event was or­gan­ised by Mr Ver­rey’s daugh­ter Natalie and her friend Lau­ren Goldstone, whose hus­band Ge­orge also died from cancer last year. The Brick­ets helped to raise more than £12,000 from their con­cert
