Tickets are now on sale to see the hysterical TV comedian Dominic Holland when he appears, for one night only, at a debut fund-raising event at the new Lodge at Keepers Green.

 

This unique evening is being organised by the Chichester Community Development Trust (CCDT) for an evening of laughter, or an ideal blues buster for a cold January night while raising money for a much needed and hugely inspirational local project.

 

A paid bar and a glimpse at this stunning new venue as soon as it opens and 30 per cent of ticket prices will help to fund a much needed project launching this year to provide support, fun and a lifeline to children in the Chichester district whose families are undergoing cancer treatment.

 

Created by a family that learned the desperate need for such provision through their own lived experiences, CCDT is delighted to be supporting Godfrey’s Gift with this event.

 

“This comedy night fuses two key parts of my life together – as a stand-up comedian myself, I know the power of laugher, and how it can help us through the most challenging times of our lives, but I also know first-hand the need for greater provision for children in this area whose parents are undergoing cancer treatment,” said Godfrey’s Gift founder Naomi Godfrey.

 

“The youngest of our four children was just six weeks old when we received my husband’s cancer diagnosis and whilst his care was extraordinary, we struggled to find ways to ease the pain of our children.”

 

Multi-award-winning Dominic has been a professional comedian for more years than he cares to recall.

 

With countless television and radio credits, including multiple appearances on Have I Got News For You and The Royal Variety Performance, as well as The News Quiz, Dominic has written and performed four BBC Radio 4 series including the The Small World Of Dominic Holland, which won a Comic Heritage Award.

 

Clare de Bathe, CCDT director, added: “We are really excited to be hosting this very special event and see it as the perfect way to launch our new venue at Keepers Green.”
