Comedian Joins Forces With Cambridge MP To Promote Charity Appeal

Julian joins forces with comedian Jon Culshaw to
support charity appeal
Impressionist and comedian, Jon Culshaw teamed up with Cambridge MP, Julian Huppert to support the Great Daffodil Appeal to raise money for cancer care.

Jon, award winning member of the Dead Ringers cast, and Julian met up at a Parliamentary event organised by the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity to encourage people to donate and wear one of the charity’s daffodil pins.

Julian said: “It was good to meet Jon who is a committed supporter of this charity.

“Marie Curie Cancer Care carries out excellent and much-needed work across Cambridgeshire, providing free nursing and hospice care to terminally ill people.

“Cancer touches so many lives and many of us will have a family member or friend who has been affected by this disease. It is good to know that charities such as Marie Curie Cancer Care are there if we need them. I hope everyone will support this appeal by giving a much-needed donation.”

Imelda Redmond, Director of Policy and Public Affairs, Marie Curie, said: “We are grateful to have the support of Julian and Jon Culshaw, as our fundraising activities are vital to ensure we can continue to provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in the charity’s nine hospices.”
