Support Sunday's Comedy event at King Edwards School!

11th September 2013


King Edwards School, Edgbaston have decided to help raise money for Cure Leukaemia by organising an event with a highly acclaimed one woman comedy show (comedian Ginny Davies pictured above) in memory of Vanessa Rose.

Vanessa tragically died of myeloma last year, after many years of treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham at the age of just 46. Friends and family of Vanessa The show “Double Booked” was a sell out hit at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has been widely acclaimed for its sharp wit and relatable family comedy as it depicts a mother trying to juggle her life with teenage children and an increasingly senile mother.

The event will be held this Sunday 6th of October and will also include a fantastic charity raffle. It will be an incredible day in memory of a very brave woman, whilst also raising money for a cause close to her heart. The doors open at 2:00 p.m. with the show beginning at 2:30 p.m. Standard tickets are £25 and £20 for students and can be booked online at www.ruddockpac.co.uk or over the phone on 0121 472 9585.

 If you cannot make it to the event but would like to still donate then a Just Giving page has been set up on which you can make a contribution.
