Comedian, broadcaster and patron of disability charity ENRYCH, Graeme Garden OBE, will host a charity stand-up comedy night ‘ENRYCH in Stitches’ with fellow comedians Lee Mack, Milton Jones, Francesca Martinez, Boothby Graffoe, Lloyd Langford and Robin Ince (compere) on Saturday 15 June 2013 at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.
By bringing together some of UK’s biggest names in comedy, Graeme hopes for a sell-out show and to raise thousands of pounds for ENRYCH which supports adults with a physical disability to enjoy leisure opportunities through partnership with a volunteer.
Graeme said: “As well as raising money and laughs I hope we find a new crowd of supporters and highlight to them what a difference even just a few hours’ volunteering a week can make to the life of someone with a physical disability, and to theirs.
“ENRYCH currently has waiting lists of people in need of partner volunteers or personal assistants. Without them, people with physical disabilities often face social isolation and struggle to enjoy the simple pleasures of life many of us take for granted.
“So snap up your tickets, come along for a laugh and help us ENRYCH more lives of people with a physical disability.”
Gina King, Chief Executive of ENRYCH, said: “A huge thank you on behalf of everyone at ENRYCH to Graeme for recruiting such a fantastic line-up, and to all the comedians for performing for free.
“Join us for what promises to be an amazing night and find out how you can help us continue to support and grow the hundreds of members, families and carers we work with.”
