Al Murray and Friends Sell Out Shows

The two shows this weekend at the Tivoli Theatre in Wimborne were a sell out and the Charity raised over £20,000 - a big thank you to everyone who came to the shows, bought up all the raffle tickets and bid so enthusiastically in the auctions - it was fantastic to see people so willing to get behind the charity and do their bit to help.

Thank you to everyone involved behind the scenes, especially 'Big Dave' for organising the shows, the performers (Britain's most wanted children's entertainer - Jeremy Lion, the first German comedian anyone had ever seen - Henning Wehn and Jewish heavy metal legends - Guns 'n' Moses) and the Tivoli Theatre in Wimborne, for providing the Venue free of charge and without whom the event would not have been possible.

Also thanks to our sponsors and everyone who donated prizes and to Al's team, 'Big Bob', friends and family who helped all weekend to make sure that the shows went smoothly, with an extra special mention to all of the Tivoli's volunteer staff who gave up their weekend for CamKids.

Of course, a very special Thank You, on behalf of the Cambodian children, goes to Al Murray for his incredible generosity and hard work this weekend and throughout the year for CamKids.

Look out for more of Al's benefit shows later in the year ..........
