Russell Howard helps raise £100,000 for city hospitals
COMEDIAN Russell Howard has helped raise a massive £100,000 for Bristol's city centre hospitals.
The Bristol-born performer headlined a matinee and evening charity comedy gala called Funny Bones: Russell Howard & Guests, organised by official hospitals charity Above & Beyond.
Hosted by another home-grown comedian, Mark Olver, the event was held at Bristol Hippodrome and featured performances from Russell himself, John Richardson, Joel Dommett, Stuart Goldsmith, Laura Lexx and many others.
All proceeds will go towards improving patient care at Bristol’s hospitals by funding welcoming environments, staff training and development, world-class equipment and innovative research.
