A NIGHT of rock'n'roll at a residents club in St Albans helped raise hundreds of pounds for Grove House Hospice recently.
St Albans band R&R were joined by The Hometown Boys, Brothers In Arms and Take No Prisoners for the five hour show at the New Greens Residents Club in High Oaks.
The music ranged from rock'n'roll to blues and Irish country and there was also a raffle half-way through the gig, selling over 1,000 tickets. A total of �864 was raised on the night, all of which will go to Grove House.
Event organiser and R&R band member John Mason said that everybody enjoyed the evening: "It went off marvellously and all those hours of putting bands together and gathering raffle prizes was well worth it.
