Big giving, big names and big laughs!

Posted Friday 6 December 2013

The Space Bar was packed out last week for our annual 'funny fundraiser', raising smiles and money for Kingston's Annual Fund.

A mixed crowd of past and present students enjoyed an evening hosted by comedian, alumni and donor James Mullinger and his comedic friends Carly Smallman (star of BBC's The Rob Brydon Show) and Andrew Doyle, critically acclaimed stand-up comedian from the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The night raised a lot of money, adding to our current telephone campaign total currently standing at £65,000... with a few more days to go it looks like we are laughing our way to a record-breaking £72,000!

Kingston is already looking forward to seeing what next year's comedy will bring, in both jokes and generosity!

Were you there? Spot yourself (or a friend) in the crowd.

To find out more about the great work the Annual Fund does and how you can be involved please contact Jason Barlow, the Annual Fund manager at or on 020 8417 3112.
