THIRSTY customers have raised a glass – and had a laugh – to boost a charity.

A stand-up comedy night was held at The Haddy Tap to raise money for Reverse Rett.

The charity is focused on delivering treatment and a cure for Rett syndrome, which is a rare genetic neurological and developmental disorder that affects the way in which the brain develops.

Steve Holligan, from Winton Brewery, which is behind The Haddy Tap, was delighted with the success of the event.

He described the charity as being “very close to our hearts” as his niece, Eliza McKinney, had Rett syndrome.

The charity’s name is on the side of the brewery’s van, while 10 per cent of profits on its IPA Mon Then! – which is described as “extremely gluggable” – go to the charity.

Steven revealed that there were plans for another comedy night to further boost the good cause.

He said: “It was another really, really good night.

“It was a full house, with five brilliant acts, and it just seems to be growing arms and legs, getting bigger and bigger.

“It is a brilliant opportunity to raise money for Reverse Rett.

“The next one will be in the New Year.

“Anything we can do to help Reverse Rett is brilliant.”
