Clare Harrison McCartney, a comedian from Harlow will use her wit to raise funds for The Princesses Alexandra hospital after suffering a car accident.

The comedy night follows Ms McCartney’s virtual gig in March, in which she raised £100 for the hospital's charity.

The 48-year-old will be performing at The Burnt Mill Social Club, Harlow, on 27 November as a ‘thank you’ for the care she has received.

She will be supported by other acts including Pam Ford, an Australian comedian with a sassy take on life.

People are invited to bring old bras to donate to charity Mama Biashara, which works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya.

Clare said: “I chose to raise money for The Princess Alexandra Hospital Charity because I was born there and they helped me through my epilepsy and a car accident I had, they are always there to support me.”

John Keddie, non-executive director and chair of The Princess Alexandra Hospital Charity said: “Thank you to Clare and the comedians taking part on the night for hosting this fantastic event for our charity.

“It is great to see such generosity – please come along and support your local hospital.”

“Please join us for a laugh-a-minute comedy night to support the hospital – there is something for everyone.”

Tickets cost £10 each and can be purchased via Eventbrite.
