Irwin Mitchell raises a laugh for cancer charity

Newcastle solicitors


The joke will be on the Newcastle office of national law firm Irwin Mitchell (IM) next month when it hosts a special comedy night in aid of St Oswald's Hospice.

The fun-packed event takes place at the Hyena Comedy Club in Leazes Lane, Newcastle on Thursday 16 March, starting at 7pm.

There, raising a few laughs - and several thousand pounds for St Oswald's - will be top local comedy talent Jim Jeffries, Paul Sneddon and Tony Hendricks.

All profits from the night will be donated to the Hospice, which provides care for local cancer victims.

Among other services, it offers specialist short breaks for North East children with life shortening conditions.

The Hospice also provides specialist care for children and support and advice for parents, within a relaxed home-from-home environment.

No charges are made for the services it provides, ensuring hospice care is available to everyone.

Irwin Mitchell partner Angela Curran, who is helping to organise the event, said:

"We're delighted to be able to support St Oswald's Hospice, which does such tremendous work in the North East.

"The evening will be great fun, with top comedians on the bill.

"We hope as many people as possible come along to enjoy the fun and look forward to raising as much money as possible for this worthy cause."

The event is open to anyone and tickets cost £10, which can be obtained from Paula Chyzy at Irwin Mitchell on 0191 279 0094 or by e-mail at
