SUPPORTING WOMEN'S CAUSES

While Funny Women continues to provide a unique platform for women to extend their comedic and creative boundaries, we also aim to raise awareness and funds for a variety of causes that directly affect women.

We like to work with organisations that represent all aspects of women’s wellbeing – 'laughing about life to help and heal women' - and empowering them to make a difference - 'helping women find their voice'.

Through our events, Funny Women has raised heaps of awareness and over £200,000 for the following charities during the last 11 years:

2003 Bristol Cancer Help Centre, now Penny Brohn Cancer Care

2004 YWCA, Jo’s Trust, V-Day

2005 YWCA , Jo’s Trust, V-Day

2006 YWCA, Jo’s Trust, V-Day, Ovarian cancer action
