Go to https://www. crowd­ sav­ing-lon­don­ers-livesvi­tal-ed­u­ca­tion-for-youths op­por­tu­nity to use The Jok­ing Com­puter, soft­ware that can build mil­lions of jokes. There will also be a com­edy im­pro­vi­sa­tion by the Funny Women Play­ers, based on sug­ges­tions from the au­di­ence on the topic of hu­mour and ‘be­ing hu­man’, plus lively panel dis­cus­sions.

Ad­mis­sion is free but we ask that you book a place.

Feel­ing Funny, Be­ing Hu­man is at Brunel Univer­sity’s An­tonin Ar­taud The­atre, on the cam­pus off Kingston Lane, Uxbridge, on Fri­day, Novem­ber 21, 4pm to 7pm. WE ARE urg­ing you to support Penny for London and reg­is­ter for the scheme.

Un­veiled by Boris John­son, this is a revo­lu­tion in char­i­ta­ble giv­ing which is set to trans­form the life chances of young Lon­don­ers from dis­ad­van­taged back­grounds all over the cap­i­tal.

The new scheme, de­vised by the Mayor’s Fund for London, marks a step change in how we do­nate to char­ity, har­ness­ing the huge po­ten­tial of con­tact­less pay­ments that now to­tal into the mil­lions.

By reg­is­ter­ing your con­tact­less debit or credit card, you can do­nate one penny, or more if you wish, ev­ery day you travel on London Un­der­ground, bus, tram, DLR, London Over­ground, and Na­tional Rail ser­vices that ac­cept Oys­ter.

Con­tact­less card­hold­ers can opt in via the Penny for London mo­bile site or web­site – www. pen­ny­for­lon­

Trans­port for London, which op­er­ates Europe’s largest sin­gle pay­ments sys­tem, counted more than five mil­lion con­tact­less jour­neys in the first month that the fa­cil­ity was avail­able on all London trans­port.

Ev­ery penny do­nated by the pub­lic will be used to ben­e­fit young Lon­don­ers via the Mayor’s Fund for London char­i­ties and other not-for-profit con­cerns.
