Eleanor Cappell, who many of you will know, is raising money for the UK Sepsis Trust, a Birmingham-based charity, in memory of her friend’s son, Tyler, who died from a sepsis infection in November of last year. Tyler was two months away from his third birthday.
Every year in the UK there are 150,000 cases of Sepsis, resulting in 44,000 deaths — more than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined.
Tyler’s family and friends are organising two comedy night fundraisers in partnership with the Comedy Loft, on Friday 14th October (Watford) and Friday 28th October (Birmingham). Tickets are £15.00, with £12.00 going straight to the chosen charity.
As well as raising much needed funds to help The UK Sepsis Trust’s work, the Remembering Tyler comedy nights are also about raising awareness of sepsis. Tyler’s family and friends have already raised over £16,500 for the Great Ormond Street Hospital and now want to help a local Birmingham charity whose work they have great personal reason to value. If you can’t make the Comedy Loft night but want to contribute, there is a Just Giving page.
