For one night only the laughter will be for a good cause
dealing with this humanitarian crisis on the ground.
Organiser Mark Rann has been flooded with offers of help from volunteers and is confident that the community will make the evening a resounding success.
He added: “Like many of my friends and neighbours I’ve been overwhelmed by the devastating events taking place in Syria. I know that we have a strong and passionate community here in Chesham and the surrounding Chilterns who are desperate to help, and I hope that we can all get behind this event to raise funds and make a real difference to the families and communities who have seen their lives destroyed.”
Numerous local individuals and organisations have donated a huge amount of gifts and services so there will also be an opportunity to purchase raffle tickets and take part in an auction to further boost the amount raised for the Refugee Crisis Appeal. Tickets cost £15. For tickets call 01494 582 900 or visit www.elgiva.com.

Chesham Comedy Club Productions has organised an event titled Stand Up for Refugees to take place at The Elgiva in St Mary’s Way, Chesham, at 7pm on Tuesday, October 13 to raise funds for the Oxfam Refugee Crisis Appeal.
The event has been organised in response to the ‘incredible’ local reaction to the plight of refugees fleeing war-torn Syria.
A ‘rip-roaring’ evening of comedy, the gifted line-up will feature the talents of Alex Horne, Dominic Holland, Marcel Lucont, Adam Bloom, Brian and Krysstal, Alistair Barrie, Mary Bourke, Simon Clayton and Dee Riley, who have all generously donated their services free of charge for the event.
Chesham Comedy Club Productions is working in collaboration with the Oxfam Refugee Crisis Appeal to raise much-needed funds.
One hundred per cent of all profits made will be given to Oxfam, which will in turn ensure that all funds are directed to their official camps
