Jo Brand, one of the UK’s best loved female comics is to give a unique performance at the Lichfield Garrick in support of The Donna Louise Hospice for Children & Young People.
BAFTA and four-time British Comedy Award winner, Jo, is well known for unique humour, not to mention her countless appearances on television, including The Great British Bake Off – Extra Slice, Have I Got News for You, Would I Lie To You, Live at The Apollo and Qi, to name but a few.
Relationship Manager at The Donna Louise, Chris Belyavin, commented: “We’re delighted that Jo is coming to Lichfield and performing in support of The Donna Louise. The hospice provides care and support services for children, and their families, who are living with life-limiting and life-shortening conditions across Staffordshire, in Lichfield and the surrounding areas.”
“We rely on charitable donations and events such as this to help raise more than 90% of the £3.6million needed each year to run our services, so we are hugely grateful to Jo and Lichfield Garrick for holding what’s sure to be a great evening!”
Jo is also a Celebrity Champion of The Donna Louise. She commented, “I have a long-standing relationship with The Donna Louise and I know what absolutely wonderful work they do. It’s such a difficult job to get the balance right, but the peaceful, at times joyful, atmosphere and the amazing staff all contribute to a truly incomparable experience for all the people whose lives The Donna Louise touches. For that reason I am delighted to be able to contribute in the best way I can.”
