Stand Up for Wirral Mencap

Portal Business Centres was delighted to be able to assist the recent Wirral Mencap “Stand Up” Comedy Night via sponsorship of one of the performers.

The event, which took place at Tranmere Rovers Prentonian Suite, was fundraising for Wirral Mencap which provides services and opportunities to improve the quality of life for those living with a learning disability, and to offer support to both them and their families. Whilst Wirral Mencap is affiliated with Mencap, it is a completely separate charity and receives no national funding, which means that the charity relies on the support and fundraising of local people and businesses.

The comedy evening came about when it was realised that the number one fear in the UK is public speaking. So The Comedy Trust got involved with Wirral Mencap and set about running a five week comedy course in Birkenhead, pushing participants to find their funny bone and move out of their comfort zone, all in the name of raising money for a good cause. The Comedy Trust have been running its comedy programmes since 2002, and over 90% of participants report an increase in their confidence, communication skills and general wellbeing.

“As a local business we believ e that it is important to support local charities wherever possible, so we were delighted when Sharon from Wirral Mencap approached us and asked us to be a sponsor for the event. With no national support, small local charities rely on support such as this and I am delighted that it was such a successful evening,” commented Sallie Maskrey, Managing Director, Portal Business Centres.
