A CHARITY concert will be held in honour of an aspiring politician murdered trying to save a woman from a sexual assault.

Alan Senitt, 27, was studying in Washington when he intervened to stop two robbers attacking his friend in Georgetown in July, 2006.

The pair stabbed him in the chest and slit his throat, leaving him to die thousands of miles from his home and family in Pinner.

Distraught relatives set up the Alan Senitt Memorial Trust to carry on his work creating unity between faith groups, and Jewish, Christian and multi-faith choirs will hold a fundraising concert on Sunday.

Karen Senitt, Alan's mother, said: “It was absolutely horrific at the time. It's a nightmare we still continue to live today.

“He was on a three month sabbatical studying political fundraising in Washington. He was out with friends that evening and he was just walking a female friend home.”

Money raised will go to the Alan Senitt Community Leadership Programme, which takes year 10 pupils from local schools and participate in their communities, particularly engaging with other faiths.

Nower Hill High School, in George V Avenue, Pinner, Alan's old school, is among those taking part.

Mrs Senitt said: “The aim is to train young people to take on active roles in there local community as well as to learn about different faiths to bring about racial harmony.”

As part of the programme the teenagers will organise and run a community project of their own, and previous groups have helped restore local parks as well as helping out in primary schools.

The concert will be at Harrow Arts Centre, in Uxbridge Road, Hatch End, on Sunday, November 15, at 4.30pm.

Single tickets cost £12.50, or £10 concessions, while family tickets, for two adults and two under 16s, cost £30.

Christopher Piper, 26, and Jeffrey Rice, 23, pleaded guilty to second degree murder and were jailed for 37 years and 52 years in August 2007.
