On Tuesday 3 March, Leigh Day organised ‘Awesome and Wobbly’ – an incredible evening of music and comedy, all in aid of Cerebra. Huge thanks to them, our kind hosts at Proud Embankment, London and the incredibly talented Aaron Simmonds, Jo Coffey, Jack Carroll, Lee Ridley (AKA Lost Voice Guy) and DJ Basz!
This event has played an important role in helping people understand more about Cerebral Palsy as well as raising awareness and vital funds for Cerebra. Thanks to Leigh Day and the generosity of all the evening’s guests, a magnificent £9,700 has been raised to help children living with a brain condition and their families to find a better life together.
As we all eagerly made our way to Proud Embankment, we were greeted by the party tunes courtesy of DJ Basz. There was then a chance to mingle and talk about Cerebra and the great work we do across the country before we were treated to some inspiring words from Leigh Day Senior Partner, Martyn Day.
The comedy was then about to begin…. Our host for the evening, Aaron Simmonds took to the stage and got the crowd revved up and revved up we all were! Jo Coffey then made sure the laughs continued, before 2013 Britain’s Got Talent runner up, Jack Carroll showed us all that the man is just as funny as the boy!
It was then yet another Britain’s Got Talent graduate and 2018 winner, Lee Ridley (AKA Lost Voice Guy) who headlined the event, reminding us all of what a worthy winner he was. Aaron Simmonds then closed the show and what a great host he was.
The night was, however, still young so take to the stage, once more, DJ Basz to get the party started again!
To Leigh Day and everyone involved in making ‘Awesome and Wobbly’ a huge success, thank you so much. The impact will go far and beyond this special night.
