EVENT: BIG charity comedy show at the Rose in aid of Momentum

The BIG charity comedy show at the Rose Theatre on Tuesday 18th October is a chance to have a fun-filled evening whilst raising much-needed funds for local children’s cancer charity Momentum.

Momentum, based in Kingston-upon-Thames, supports families of children with cancer and life-limiting conditions across SW London and Surrey, including families in Kingston and surrounding areas.

Momentum events fundraiser Kate Brookes said: “The comedy show will be a huge amount of fun. We have so many well-known comedians taking part, and it’s all in a good cause. The evening’s proceeds will go towards Momentum to help the charity continue to support sick children and their families locally.”

The charity, which was founded in 2004, offers practical and emotional support through its Family Support Programme; providing holidays to its two New Forest Holiday Homes, respite breaks on its new canal boat, and other additional trips and treats to help during the stress of treatment. In addition to this Momentum also works with local hospitals refurbishing children’s wards to Enhance the Healing Environment, including Kingston Hospital where it has carried out extensive refurbishments to the Paediatric Unit.

Momentum receives no government funding so relies entirely on the support of the public and funds raised through its charity work. It is a registered, independent charity established in 2004 (Registered charity no 1106677). www.moment-um.org
