Team story

[p]We have done a lot of scary stuff for charity in our time, but appearing on stage for four minutes, in front of a live audience, and actually trying to get them to laugh will be by far the most terrifying thing we’ve ever done. It is however nothing compared to the courage patients show in their fight against Cancer.[/p] [p][/p] [p]By performing our début stand up comedy act at Funny Business later this year we are looking to raise money for The Christie and Prostate Cancer UK charities. We are thrilled that we’ve managed to persuade such a wonderful group of high-profile Manchester business people to take part, and with their help are targeting to exceed our very successful 2010 skydive fundraiser.[/p] [p][/p] [p]Joining us on the bill will be Urban Splash Chairman Tom Bloxham, DX Group CEO Petar Cvetkovic, founder of Chess Telecom David Pollock, Duerr's Sales and Marketing Director Richard Duerr and Senior Independent Director of Fenner Plc Vanda Murray.[/p] [p][/p] [p]We have teamed up with professional comedians to give us a winning chance (we need all the help we can get!), but what we really need is your support and cash to give us the nerve to come out on stage and attempt to make you laugh. Please donate generously and get your tickets to come and see us live on 2 October at Deansgate Locks Comedy Store.[/p] [p]Special thanks to our wonderful Corporate Sponsors: New Look, Deloitte, PZ Cussons, NCC Group, Interserve, Zeus Capital, DX Group, Scapa, Ol Irish DB and Manchester Airport Group.[/p] [p]Caroline, Elaine and Sharon.[/p][p][/p][p][url=http://www.funnybusinessnw.co.uk]www.funnybusinessnw.co.uk[/url][/p] [p]@funnybusinessnw[/p]
