They’re rocking for cancer support
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
