Cambridge Rock
The Roots of Cambridge Rock Reunion musical event held at St Paul's Church in Hills Road raised £1116 for charity through ticket sales and a collection held on the night.

Three charities were chosen to receive cheques for £372 each at a presentation in St Paul's on 8 December: Parkinson's UK, Alzheimer's Society and the Syd Barrett Fund.

The above photo shows members of the event's organising committee comprising 1960s band members presenting the cheques to local charity representatives:

I wonder if you could help me tracking down an email adress or any contact information for that matter for Pink Floyd. One of my friend's birthday is coming up and I thought of making him a surprise related to Pink Floyd. I accessed their official website but I couldn't seem to find anything that could help me (I hope I had my sight with me and saw right). I also checked on various websites (thus I found you) but still nothing so far.

Anyways, in case the trouble isn't too big and you can help me in my pursuit of making a friend more happy than he ever dreamt, please contact me back at

Thank you for your time,
