2017 has seen the development of a fantastic partnership between The Glee Club and Birmingham Children’s Hospital charity, and the venue got stuck into their fundraising in October by organising a great night of comedy. The Glee Club wowed audiences and hosted a great comic performance from rising local talent and comedy hero, Joe Lycett, and Britain's Got Talent finalist Daliso Chaponda. They were joined by Newcastle’s Rahul Kohli and Comedy Carousel host Andy Robinson, as MC.

The venue generously donated one hundred per cent of ticket revenue to the club's chosen charity partner for 2017, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, who will use the funds to assist children and their families in both the UK and Malawi. 

The Glee's Director, Mark Tughan, said: "Supporting Birmingham Children's Hospital has been great this year and we are really pleased to have been able to help such a worthy cause. We never expected to raise so much. This demonstrates the warmth and generosity of the public towards the hospital, and to crown our year-long fundraising partnership off with a sold out show is the icing on the cake."

Eloise Davidson, Birmingham Children's Hospital Charity Corporate Fundraising Manager, said: “Thank you so much to everyone at The Glee Club for putting on this fantastic event for us. At Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, we believe that there is always more we can do for our sick kids and events such as these help raise both awareness and vital funds for the families and children that we treat."

Part of the fundraising from this event will go to the charity’s Malawi Partnership which helps to provide an educational link between hospital staff in the UK and Malawi, allowing staff to share knowledge, improve skills and ultimately improve health care for children. Thank you so much for your support!”

Thank you Glee Club for putting the funny in fundraising!
