An evening of fun and laughter was staged by Dains Accountants in Stoke-on-Trent to give a huge boost to mental health charity North Staffs Mind. The Stoke office organised a side-splitting comedy night for staff, friends and family members to raise £2,250 for the independent Potteries-based organisation.
Top comedians Chris Washington and former Britain's Got Talent star and headline act Daliso Chaponda took centre-stage during the evening which took place at The Genting Casino in Stoke-on-Trent on Thursday 24th October, 2019.
The event, which also included a fundraising auction, was compered by experienced after dinner speaker and comedian Dave Bryon. Fantastic prizes were up for grabs in the auction including a pair of tickets for a show and overnight stay at Resorts World, Birmingham, two tickets in a Genting box at Manchester United or Liverpool FC and a case of Tattinger champagne.
Other auction prizes which were kindly donated included limited-edition plates which were designed by local artist Joanna Dawidowska and produced by Stoke-on-Trent ceramics company Steelite in conjunction with British Ceramics Biennial (BCB) at Spode. Staffordshire company Landpod, which designs and manufactures all terrain camping pods and cabins, also offered a Landpod weekend break for up to four people at YHA Eskdale. Two tickets for a box at Liverpool FC attracted the biggest bid of £525 from one of the guests on the night.
All proceeds from the ticket sales were donated to North Staffs Mind, and Genting Casino raised £1,300 alone towards the total amount.
