“Never underestimate the impact your Charity Chuckle nights and Stand Up to End VAW have – it is so impressive to have such energy driving these events forward and benefiting so many.” Gail Gray, CEO of Rise
Charity Chuckle has been raising funds and awareness through stand-up comedy since June 2009. From single parent families to the long-term unemployed, from sufferers of drug addiction to dicky tickers, even small amounts of money can keep these charities and community groups going. We have now donated over £15,000 to local charities – money raised entirely through laughter!
We’ve organised events to benefit the whole community and the money raised depends almost entirely on the number of people we get through the door, so your custom is always extremely welcome!
There’s usually a raffle too, just to add that little extra to the pot.
More than anything, by hosting a live comedy event we hope to provide something a little bit different for those involved in the charitable sector and the local community. But we’re not exclusive… anyone with an irresistible urge to laugh, clap or throw money in a bucket can come too.
