Scott Hampton Foundation Charity Night

I have just had approval from Ovalhouse that one night in December will be a charity fundraiser event, where proceeds from the takings that night will be given to the Scott Hampton Foundation for Burkitt’s Lymphoma. Burkitt’s lymphoma is a type of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and affects around 200 people in the UK each year and is the most commonly diagnosed in teenagers and young adults. Around a third of these cases are in children. How the disease develops remains unclear but research has shown that the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) may be involved. Scott Hampton, who trained with me at LAMDA, was struck down in 2005 with the disease and the foundation was set up to fund research into understanding the disease and finding a cure.

Currently I am raising funds to enable the performance of Unbroken Line to go on at Ovalhouse. I am waiting for the answer from the Arts Council of England to see if they will help with funding it. I also have a live WeFund pledge page where I am looking to raise £2250 to help with the rest of the funding. Already on my first day of 85, 3 people have raised £100 for me. This feels good going on my first day. Things are looking exciting folks!
