Comedy Night a huge success

780 400 Susie

What a night! Monday saw our third annual Comedy Night at The Comedy Store London, sponsored by Canary Wharf Contractors Fund and curated and hosted by our amazing Ambassador Suzi Ruffell.

The evening was sold out, with 400 guests joining us for an incredible night of standup comedy from the extremely talented Rob Beckett, Laura Smyth, Dinesh Nathan, Maisie Adam, Thanyia Moore and Tom Allen.

The Spread a Smile Comedy Night is an important date in our fundraising calendar, providing an opportunity to welcome supporters and new friends for a fun night out whilst also raising vital funds for our work spreading smiles to seriously ill children, young people and their families. Over £22,000 was raised on the night through ticket sales and a raffle and guests heard more about our work and the difference they are helping to make to the families we support.

Lucy Jackson, Spread a Smile Chief Executive said, “This year’s Comedy Night was a huge success, made possible by the wonderful support by our incredible Ambassador Suzi Ruffell, her fellow comedians, our headline sponsor and guests. The room was filled with so much joy and it really brought home just how important smiles and laughter are. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who made this brilliant event possible and for helping to raise such a brilliant amount to ensure we can keep spreading smiles to our families when they need us most.”

We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who joined us and to Suzi for all her hard work bringing this brilliant event together. To comedians Rob Beckett, Laura Smyth, Dinesh Nathan, Maisie Adam, Thanyia Moore and Tom Allen for treating us to such a wonderful evening of entertainment and giving up their time to help spread smiles.
