After an overwhelming response from last year’s comedy night, Bridge Recruitment is proud to announce our partnership with Bounce Back UK, who will be the official charity supported by the FM Comedy Night on the April 6th 2020.
About the event
On Monday 6th April 2020, Bridge Recruitment will be hosting the second FM Comedy Night at the iconic Comedy Store, in aid of Bounce Back. The FM Comedy Night brings together FM professionals to enjoy a live comedy event whilst raising funds for Bounce Back, a fantastic charity. Early bird tickets are now on sale here and every purchase will go directly to supporting Bounce Back UK.
The line up is still being finalised, however, Alistair Barrie, Dane Baptiste, Ben Norris, and Rich Wilson, are all confirmed for the event.
Who are Bounce Back?
Bounce Back is an organisation and social enterprise dedicated to helping ex-offenders get back on track in and out of prison from custody to employment. Since it formed eight years ago, the charity has set up training centres in six prisons, as well as two outside. The charity delivers programmes focusing on painting and decorating, dry lining, scaffolding and aerial window cleaning.
The charity believes that everyone has the ability to change and deserves the chance to do so. Their re-offending rate is just below 10% compared to the national average’s 50%, and that’s thanks to their strong focus on employment and the support they give to those trying to get back on their feet.
