COM­EDY fans en­joyed a night of fundrais­ing for Den­ham Vil­lage In­fant School.

Nearly £1,200 was raised at the com­edy gig at Den­ham Vil­lage Hall on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 9 thanks to the ef­forts of the Friends of Den­ham Vil­lage In­fant School (FODVIS).

A to­tal of 75 peo­ple laughed their way through the evening as co­me­di­ans Tom Price, Stu­art Laws and Mar­cel Lu­cont en­ter­tained the crowds, with Stu­art Laws also com­per­ing.

Or­gan­iser Wendy Cope said: “It was bril­liant. Ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic.”

Miss Cope said her favourite part was catch­ing up with the moth­ers of for­mer and cur­rent pupils.

“It was nice to bring the com­mu­nity back to­gether, be­cause there were lots of peo­ple from the vil­lage and the sur­round­ing ar­eas,” she said.

“The fact that we raised that amount of money to go to­wards the com­put­ers was fan­tas­tic.”

The next event she has planned is a quiz night at St Mary’s Hall to raise money for the school and the lo­cal Brown­ies. Con­tact 07826 685098 for more in­for­ma­tion.
