Have a good laugh for a good cause this November

Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust are inviting you to join them for an evening of fun, laughter and entertainment at Hull Truck Theatre, with their Stand Up for Health Stars comedy event that raises money for local NHS services.

A portion of all ticket sales will go directly to the Health Stars charity, which promotes the development of exceptional health and social care services in Hull and beyond. Through their investment in environments, resources, training, and research, they can add that ‘extra sparkle’ to local services and help create meaningful experiences for NHS staff, patients and their loved ones.

Health Stars invest tens of thousands of pounds into Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust’s services every year, and these are services which are provided to over 800,000 people living within the region.

The event will take place at Hull Truck Theatre on Ferensway, on Friday 4 November at 8pm.

Stand Up for Health Stars comes as part of Yorkshire’s biggest comedy festival, with thousands of people attending events across the region, and will host an incredible line-up of local and regional comedy talent – with a sprinkle of some award-winning acts from the UK comedy festival scene!

The aim of the evening is to have a good laugh for a good cause, raising money in a way that directly impacts and serves our local communities.

Gary Jennison, Health and Wellbeing Specialist at Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“We think it’s important to provide people a space to come down and have a good time, all in the name of a good cause. The money raised for Health Stars will directly impact our staff and patients as it will go towards our health and wellbeing agenda, which means the money could be spent on anything from new equipment to wellbeing areas in our staff rooms, where people can take a moment to breathe. A small donation really does go a long way, so do join us and let’s have some fun!”

Cheryl Beal, Charity Manager for Health Stars, said:

“We are very proud of our local NHS here at Health Stars, and we work hard to support the brilliant members of staff who go above and beyond for their patients every day.

As a local charity, we rely on the support of others to raise money. Generous donations and wonderful fundraising efforts, like the stand-up event Gary has organised with Hull Truck Theatre, really do make a difference. We look forward to enjoying the evening and helping people learn more about who we are, and what we do.”

Janthi Mills-Ward, Executive Director at Hull Truck Theatre, said:

“We’re delighted to be hosting this charity comedy night for Health Stars at our home on Ferensway. We recognise and appreciate all the important work the NHS do in serving our communities across Hull and East Yorkshire and hope that this fun night of stand up, which is taking place as part of Hull Comedy Festival (2 – 20 November), raises funds which can be put towards a good cause.”
