|Go Purple Laughing Comedy Night At Putney Arts Theatre|
In Aid of Kidney Research UK on 16th March
Organiser & Putney resident Susanna Statton was lucky enough to have a Kidney transplant two years ago. She told PutneySW15.com: "
I needed a transplant because of a genetic condition known as “Polycystic Kidney Disease”. I wanted to do something for Kidney Research UK when I heard about the amazing breakthroughs that were possible but lacked the funding to research them. I thought about running a marathon or jumping out of an aeroplane but then I thought “who am I kidding? I’m a coward and I like cake!” So instead I decided to speak to my community theatre about a comedy event to raise funds for KRUK. I can think of nothing better than people having a laugh and saving lives at the same time. so the Go Purple Laughing Comedy Night on the 16th of March 7.45 at Putney Arts Theatre was born".
