Twelve Nights, Twelve Charities raises over £75,000


It seems like Danny Bhoy’s been a regular at Edinburgh’s Fringe since Nicholas Parsons was a boy – he’s performed here since 2001 – but this year the popular Scottish stand up did things a little differently. All proceeds from Danny’s Assembly Rooms show – Twelve Nights, Twelve Charities – was donated to local charities.

Danny explained: “All charities are deserving, but I have chosen twelve perhaps lesser well-known organisations that do terrific work in and around Edinburgh mainly with young people and children.”

The punchline? Sellout gigs and the twelve local charities are laughing all the way to the bank – Danny’s sell-out shows raised an incredible £75, 240.61p!

Among those charities were Leith-based Multicultural Family Base (MCFB), The Yard in Stockbridge and Pilton Youth and Childrens Project, and Danny and his sister Bina have just completed a wee mini-tour, delivering the goods news to the projects!

PYCP5For Pilton Youth and Children’s Project,there was a cheque for over £5600 and a ‘bucket shake’ at the Assembly Rooms raised another £600 – lots to smile about when money is so tight!

PYCP’s chairperson Clare Halliday said yesterday: “This is really amazing, absolutely brilliant. Support like this makes a huge difference and Danny’s generosity will be used toward our holiday provision and residentials. We can’t thank him enough.”
