A 43-year-old nurse who is battling cancer and appealing for £70,000 to tackle the disease herself is hoping to see her coffers boosted by a comedy night featuring a wealth of TV stars.

Sarah Swindells has stage four skin cancer, which has spread to her liver and lungs and requires ground-breaking cancer treatment.

It originated in America and is only available privately at The Christie, leading Sarah to launch her campaign to give her one last chance of survival.

The Tameside nurse has so far raised over £10,000 but will see that total boosted further thanks to a charity night organised by Tameside based comedians.

Next Wednesday, July 22, a host of TV stars and comedians will turn out for free at Manchester’s
Comedy Store to raise funds for Sarah, who lived in Gee Cross, Hyde, until 2002.

The Stand Up For Sarah show will see a host of household names such as Justin Moorhouse, Joe
Lycett and Steve Shanyaski donate their services for the night free of charge, along with the Comedy Store.

Tickets cost £14 and £10 for concessions with all proceeds going towards Sarah’s treatment.

You can purchase tickets from www.thecomedy
or by calling (0161) 839 8585.
