Hestia’s Comedy Night: Stand Up Against Domestic Abuse

Last night the Avadis & Co. team attended Dingwall’s en masse for Hestia Housing and Support’s annual comedy night – for which we were immensely proud to be the events principle sponsor.

The goal of the night was to raise vital funds for women and children across London who are escaping domestic abuse. The evening’s MC was Joy Carter (co-host of the BEFFTA Awards 2010), and she was joined on stage by Shazia Mirza (Have I Got News For You and Guardian columnist), Roisin Conaty (BBC 3’s Impractical Jokers/ Edinburgh Comedy Award), Jason Patterson (Edinburgh Comedy Festival/ Loaded Laftas Rising Star Comedy Award), Sarah Kendall, Suzi Ruffel, Liam Williams and Felicity Ward.

The evening itself was nothing short of a resounding success – tackling a serious issue and raising funds all whilst putting smiles on people’s faces.
