Godwick Charity Events raises £££s and laughs with Josh Widdicombe for local Breast Care Unit

James Garner and Dr Steven Grove’s latest fundraising event The Godwick Great Barn Laugh raises £5000 for the Breast Care Unit at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn.

The successful event took place on Saturday 7 May 2016 in memory of Sara Garner and her daughter Sally Garner  who both lost their battles with breast cancer in 2013.

The first ever comedy night held by Godwick Charity Events at Godwick Great Barn didn’t disappoint with the event including a set by Josh Widdicombe, one of Britain’s most recognised comedians.

The night also included two other comedians, Tom Crane and Henry Paker, along with food and free drinks on arrival, a charity auction and live music.

The Godwick Great Barn Laugh was the fourth fundraising event organised by the pair who have now raised over £32,000 since 2013 for breast cancer related services at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, with funds going towards the Chemotherapy Unit of the Macmillan Cancer Care and Treatment Centre and the Breast Cancer Care Unit.

James Garner, managing director of Godwick Great Barn, said: “On behalf of Godwick Charity Events I would like to say a massive thank you to Tom Crane, Josh Widdicombe and Henry Paker for giving up their time so generously and for entertaining our guests so well. They really did have us rolling around with laughter making the first ever Godwick Great Barn Laugh a huge success.

“Godwick Charity Events is extremely proud to have raised another

£5000 for the QEH Breast Cancer Care Unit Development Fund. It really is wonderful to see the unit up-and-running and to learn of the improvement it is making in the conditions and treatment of local patients suffering from breast cancer and the staff that work therein.”

“My mum and my sister would have been very proud that we have supported its development in some way.”

Amy Burger, consultant breast and reconstructive surgeon, said: “We are really grateful for the years of hard work and fundraising the family have done for the unit. It is so nice to be able to show them the progress of the Unit – their donations have helped create a much improved space for patient care, and a fantastic place to work.”
