A comedy night held at the Joker pub, Preston Road last night raised £584 in aid of vlogger Charlotte Eades and her battle against Glioblastoma.
Charlotte, from Withdean in Brighton, began vlogging when she was diagnosed with the rare form of brain cancer. She would openly discuss her painful treatments and regular chemotherapy as well as the side effects, such as hair loss and going partially deaf and blind.
Glioblastoma multiforme is a form of cancer in which the brain cells start to divide rapidly and uncontrollably, creating a malignant tumour.
The comedians, who took part donated their time for free, included Ali MacFarlane, Sean McLoughlin, Joe Foster, Johnny Wardlow, Ben Robson and Benedict Carter.
All proceeds raised go towards Charlotte’s BAG, one of the only charities in the UK focussed on the disease, which aims to raise £60,000 per year to fund research at Kings College Hospital, London.
Liv Evans, Charlotte’s friend, and Alex Eades, her brother, organised the show which audiences described as being filled to the brim.
