A community charity night in Buckinghamshire has raised a fantastic £1,020 for Hamlin Fistula UK.

Organised by Hamlin Fistula UK supporter Patrick Morris, the event held in Padbury village in Buckinghamshire in December 2019 featured a stellar line-up including Paul McCaffery (pictured above), Ivo Graham (Have I Got News for You, Live at The Apollo, Mock The Week), Alex Kealy (The Guardian’s Top Ten Jokes of The Fringe), and was hosted by George Rigden (Leicester Mercury New Comedian of The Year).

Patrick told us “I have been involved in the comedy scene since 2009 and wanted to support Hamlin because of the fantastic work they do in Ethiopia. It’s great that we can all play our part in helping to eradicate fistula – we know that some of the poorest women in the world will have their lives restored because we had a great night of comedy just before Christmas.”

We extend a huge thank you to Patrick and his family, the comedians and the local community of Padbury village!
