MindOut for the Laughs, the annual fundraiser for LGBTQ+ mental health charity MindOut, raised a whopping £3,700 for LGBTQ+ mental health earlier this month.

MindOut said: “Huge thanks to everyone who joined us for the evening and bought merch and raffle tickets.

“Our incredible performers sure did make it a night to remember. Ophelia Payne, our wonderful host and MindOut ambassador, glued the show together with sequins, songs, banter and hamsters (you really had to be there!)

Hannah Brackenbury was as joyful as ever with silly songs about cats, hayfever and the i360. Alfie Ordinary was anything but normal as Tinky-Winky. Comedy stars Kate Cheka and Emily Bampton from the Cocoa Butter Club made our faces ache from laughing. And our headliner Lee Peart stole the show! All this alongside our equally hilarious BLS interpreters, Paula Cox and Paul Michaels.

“See you next year for more drag, cabaret and comedy!”
