[/p][p]I am fundraising to support Leicester based charity [b]Big Difference Company[/b] and would greatly appreciate any support you can provide. Every Little Helps![/p][p][b]A little bit about the charity...[/b][/p][p]The Big Difference Company work with young people, children, older people, people with disabilities as well as projects which appeal to massive numbers of the general public. They specialise in using comedy and humour as an effective form of communication.[/p][p]In previous years they have used the arts to improve public health and address health inequalities across the UK and their 'Make Me Happy' programme involves a staggering 20,000 people each year. Giving them the chance to take part in a wide range of cultural activities and events involving people of all ages, backgrounds, cultures and abilities.[/p][p]Are you living in the Leicestershire area?[/p][p]Do you enjoy community activities?[/p][p]Do you visit the Leicester Comedy Festival each year to see your favourite comedian?[/p][p]Don't care at all but want to see me make a fool of myself???[/p][p]Well, lets keep that going for years to come...
