THE premature death of two childhood friends of one of the musicians has prompted a rock concert to raise funds for a Harpenden-based national charity.
Anjali Rundle, who both organised and will perform at Harpenden Rocks! next Saturday, March 13, is raising funds for the A-T (Ataxia-Telangiectasia) Society which was set up following the deaths of Maureen Poupard's son and daughter from the rare neurodegenerative and progressive condition.
The remainder of the money raised from the gig will go to Harpenden Lions charities.
As well as Anjali, the night at the Royal British Legion in the town, will feature the Low Lamps and the Gigantics.

Anjali said: "I wanted to help amazing local charities like the Harpenden Lions Club and especially the A-T Society with which I have a special bond."
It was her idea to bring together local musicians from Harpenden's thriving music scene for the gig and Harpenden Lions are also involved.
Tickets are available online from the website www.harplions.com or on the night.
