Charity Father Ted do to hit Clapham

Father-Ted
A London-based Corkonian is hosting a Father Ted fun night in Clapham to raise money for a charity very close to his heart.
Mick Crowley is also running a half marathon in Richmond to raise money for the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT), because of their work in helping families of children who suffer from retinoblastoma.
Retinoblastoma is a rare cancerous tumour which affects infants in one of both eyes and occurs in 40-50 child births every year.
Mick himself lost an eye to the illness when aged 18 months old and is keen to raise money for CHECT to help affected families, raise awareness and to fund further research.

It is the second year in a row that Mick is organising the fun night, raising almost £4,000 last year, and he hopes to do even better with this year’s event.

As well as attendees encouraged to dress up as their favourite Father Ted character, there will be a lovely girls competition a raffle, and a best dressed contest.

The shenanigans kick off at The Alexandra on Clapham Common at 8pm on February 28. See his Facebook event page for more details or his Just Giving fundraising page to donate, where he has already raised £475.
