Comedy Night – Raising funds and awareness for the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust with a smile!

Jo Brand at Comedy StoreMonday night saw an evening of mirth and merriment in aid of the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust. Comic genius Jo Brand along with her friends graced the stage at the famous Comedy Store in London to raise funds and awareness for the Trust.

The evening started with a VIP champagne and canapes reception. Such was the popularity that all VIP tickets sold out!

First up on stage was Jo herself whose unique “brand” of humour had the audience in stitches. Jo was followed by the wit of Mark Maier, the patter and sharp tongue of Sol Bernstein and the irreverent songs of Frank Sanazi. After the interval, Angie McEvoy and Ian Stone wrapped up with a couple of fabulous performances.

Jo kindly drew the raffle where prizes included a night’s stay at a five star hotel, golf membership and beauty salon vouchers. The night raised in excess of £5,000 for the Trust – these funds will enable us to continue giving much needed support to women with early pregnancy complications, their families and the healthcare professionals who care for them via our website, forum, helpline and conferences.

Our immense thanks go to Jo, Mark, Sol, Frank, Angie and Ian and the Comedy Store as well as our raffle donors, suppliers and of course audience members. We cannot do the work that we do without all of your generous support.
