We are super pleased to announce that the comedy shows at Forge Comedy Club at Ironworks Studios and Funny That Comedy at Horse Inn Hurstpierpoint on 5th March 2022 raised £2600 for Ukraine, dealing with the incredibly difficult refugee crisis – £1000 of which was a one-off donation.
These figures included the profits for both shows, donations from audience and the founder. Special mention also has to go to Brighton comedian Laura Lexx who forwent her entire fee from the shows at Forge Comedy Club and Haywards Heat Comedy the previous week. Laura we love you!
£1,600 goes towards the International Rescue Committee operating under the DEC umbrella who are on the ground already in Poland helping with the huge number of incoming refugees, and the one-off donation of £1000 towards a local initiative from The Horse Inn to deliver important survival supplies from the UK to the Polish border – details of which are here.
Anyway, you’re all brilliant. So here’s something ridiculously beautiful; a little Ukrainian girl in a bunker singing Let it Go, in Russian. Thank you!
