Two men from Haywards Heath held a comedy nighton Saturday September 5 in aid of North Chailey-based charity the St Peter & St James Hospice.

‘Cryan with Laughter’, which was held at The Birch Hotel in Haywards Heath, was organised by Craig Ghochani and his step brother Ryan Fry and involved ten comedians, a raffle and plenty of food and drink supplied by the venue.

Craig said: “We chose the hospice because it is a local charity and we wanted to give something back to the community.

“We have also had close friends and family who have been looked after by the hospice. It was such a great feeling handing the cheque over.”

He added: “We want to say a massive thank you to everybody involved in the show. We have been planning this for some time, and finally we went ahead with it.

“Thank you to The Birch Hotel and Gemma for letting us use the venue. Also to Saltworks cafe in Haywards Heath, who let us print our flyers there. Simon the pa guy who kindly leant us his equipment.

“All the comedians who put on a great night and finally to everyone who showed up and supported the hospice. It was a fantastic evening and we are delighted with all the support.
