Go for the Byrne - Children's charity set to benefit from Ed Byrne's trusty London date
Just on sale this morning and rather hot off the press, is news of another Ed Byrne performance in London. But this is no ordinary event - this is a benefit concert in aid of the Sick Children's Trust (www.sickchildrenstrust.org), a non-profit charity which temporarily houses families in homes close to hospitals, whilst a child member undergoes long-term treatment or operation. Rather than families spend time apart during difficult terminal illness, they can be closer to the young patient.
Ed Byrne has been nominated to support the Trust's inaugural comedy night at London's Leicester Square Theatre on 21st October, in the hope of raising over £5,000. Tickets for this worthy event (called The Big Gig) cost just £15 and tickets are already selling fast.
Irishman Byrne is no stranger to ethical and moral standing - he was declared as a key supporter of the British Humanist Association in 2008, an organization that promotes an inclusive society through mutual respect (other members include Stephen Fry and Anish Kapoor). To most, he is famous for appearances on "Mock The Week" and several festivals this summer, including the recent Greenwich Comedy Festival.
Dig deep for the Big Gig and keep this charity alive for your children's sake.
