TWO star comedians helped raise £7,500 to help severely disabled children looked after by a local hospice. 

Haven House Children's Hospice was thrilled with the turnout for its first ever comedy night, which took place in Islington last night (April 18). 

The Woodford Green hospice managed to bag local resident and stand-up comic Russell Kane as the host for the evening. 

Russell was also joined by star of The Last Leg Adam Hills, who made a special guest appearance along with Sean Walsh and several other upcoming talents. 

He said: "It was a brilliant night and I was thrilled to take part and support a hospice so local to me.  

"Being able to help means a lot and I was delighted that I was able to meet some of the families in the audience." 

The Enfield-born comic stayed after the show to meet 17-year-old Harry Luxton from Romford who has been going to Haven House since 2015. 

Harry has Duchenne muscular dystrophy and came along with his parents Joanna and Steve and sister Ellie. 

He said: “It was a really good night and I haven’t laughed so much in a long time. Russell was a great compere.” 

Haven House's Natalie Chevin thanked Russell and Adam for taking part, as well as the guests who came as far as Northampton to show their support.
