Laughs Aplenty As Comedy Evening Raises Funds For Disabled Supporters
St George's Day brought a host of top comedians to the Gigg Suite, with an evening of mirth and merriment all round. Headliner Rob Rouse stole the show, with fantastic support from Alex Boardman and Jonny Pelham, and MC Dave Williams kept things flowing smoothly.
Commercial Consultant for Bury FC Community Trust Steve Ebbrell said "I'm glad that we were able to put this event on to help raise money for lifelong Bury fan Stan McGowen, who uses his own time and money to provide transport to away games for disabled Bury fans. Hopefully we will be able to do more over the coming years to ensure this vital service can continue to be provided."
The event raised £574 which was presented to Stan this afternoon.
Thanks also go to Gag Reflex, East Lancashire Railway, Paul Fox, Zandra and Paul McGowen, and all the staff and supporters at Bury Football Club for their help in ensuring the event was as successful as it was.
