Charity Chuckle for MSA – Comedy for a Cause
For immediate release: Wednesday 18 February 2015
Top comedians, Mark Maier, Angie McEvoy, Steve Best, Peter Beckley and Dominic Holland will be leading a night of hijinks and hilarity at The London Comedy Store in support of the Multiple System Atrophy Trust (MSA Trust). This fun night will be taking place on Monday 2 March at 8pm.
Tickets are available at £15 from the Comedy Store’s website. For those heading straight from work, there will be happy hour at the bar from 6.30pm. By the end of the night the audience will feel great after having had a good laugh but also because all proceeds go to the MSA Trust.
Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a neurodegenerative disease leading to premature death. It causes brain cells to shrink resulting in problems with balance, movement and automatic functions like blood pressure control, swallowing and speech. Some people with MSA say it feels like the disease traps them in their own bodies. There is no known cause or cure for MSA, which strikes at random, usually when people are in their late 50s.
The MSA Trust is the UK’s leading charity supporting everyone affected by MSA. It provides the services of specialist nurses, a support group network, an email and telephone advice service and it funds vital research to find the cause, and one day cure, for MSA.
Melissa Tindle, Community and Events Manager at the Trust, said:
“It’s great that the Comedy Store is supporting us by hosting Charity Chuckle for MSA. Our services are supported free of charge and we rely entirely on voluntary donations, so without events like this we would be unable to continue to support people affected by this cruel disease.
“Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to have a good night with loads of laughs and, at the same time, supporting the work of the Trust.”
