A Sefton-based social care charity doing invaluable work across the borough to help adults who are considered to be vulnerable, including people living with a disability or needing mental health support, is planning to put a smile on people’s faces and create belly laughs next Thursday in Liverpool City Centre
Expect Ltd will host their first ever Comedy Night event at LEAF on Bold Street with a top line up of comedians including Stephen Cookson, Sam Avery and Jack Miller with Eddie Fortune as compere.
Money raised from the event will go to Housing Initiatives, part of the Expect Group that provides accommodation in collaboration with other charitable and not-for-profit organisations and social landlords to offer affordable housing. Funds will go towards the refurbishment of one of the team’s houses within the local community.
One of their recent partnerships was with ex-servicemen now being able to move into their own self-contained flats. In addition to housing provision they also pride themselves on the relationships that they build with tenants, many of whom are otherwise socially isolated. They organise community outings as well as signposting them to other appropriate interventions.
Kevin Byrne, Business Development Manager at Expect Ltd said: “Our comedy evening will bring some much needed brand awareness and attention to the charities and the important work that we do. It’s also great to give our service users, staff and supporters the opportunity for a different, fun night out whilst raising vital funds.”
The event is being sponsored by local Insurance firm Butterworth Spengler. Director Mark Robinson said: “Butterworth Spengler are delighted to be involved in helping this event. Here’s to a great night and hopefully raising lots of money for a good cause.”
Kevin added: “Having the support of Mark and the team at Butterworth Spengler is crucially important to us. It’s really very much appreciated and a huge help to our fundraising efforts.”
