The Victoria Foundation exists to provide life enhancing medical assistance with the aim of improving lives where there is an opportunity to do so. The charity is helping to improve many lives through the medical support it provides to both individuals and charities including Mobility Aids for Children, Accessible Transport Vehicles, Hospital Treatment, Medical Equipment and Toolkit Grants and Bursaries to ensure young people destined to be to become the future generations of doctors are not prevented from doing so because of finanacial restrictions. The donations we receive fund medical support and are not used to cover our administration costs.

Women aren't funny, it's a common cry. Richmond business, Funny Women has been proving differently for the last 8 years. With a record number of entries into the 2010 Funny Women awards, now it's time to show that all women can tap into their innate sense of humour and use it to communicate effectively in their business and social lives. How hard can it be? We challenge five local business women to take to the Funny Women stage for one night only and perform three minutes of stand up comedy to a paying audience in aid of Richmond based charity, The New Victoria Medical Foundation, in the lush surroundings of the Bingham Hotel. The show will be hosted by television, Gabby Logan, who is also in training to tell a few jokes, and each woman will be mentored for her performance by Lynne Parker, founder and producer of Funny Women and a few of her favourite female acts.
Please note Virgin Money Giving isn't responsible for the content fundraisers post on their pages, but if you see something you feel is offensive or inappropriate, please let us know and we'll look into it.
Funny Women Challenge

Hosting this fabulous event will be television presenter and Richmond resident, Gabby Logan who is also in training to tell a few jokes and a few funny anecdotes about life with the BBC sports presenting team.
Funny Women are challenging five prominent business women – Julie Hall, Karen Darby, Claire Pelenc, Mel Burgess and Nora Berge - to perform three minutes of stand-up comedy for the first time to a paying audience. The event will raise awareness and funds for locally based charity, The New Victoria Medical Foundation, and takes place in the luxurious surroundings of The Bingham, boutique hotel and restaurant. Each act will be asking friends and contacts to sponsor them.
Each woman performing will have been mentored for her performance by the Funny Women team and a few of their favourite comedy acts.
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor the team and donations will be quickly processed and passed to The New Victoria Medical Foundation. Virgin Money Giving will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
Please sponsor the team - 100% of the funds raised will provide much needed mobility equipment for disabled children helping to give them independence at school and home.
Thank you very much for your support.
