All Things Paul Comedy Night


Tonight we host a very special gig in memory of Paul, doing what he loved - COMEDY!

Paul was a patient of the Royal Brompton Hospital and was cared for by Professor Anita Simmonds and her amazing team. As a family we have fond memories of Paul's time at the Royal Brompton due to the care and support we received from all the staff on the Victoria Ward.

Paul benefited from pioneering research carried out by Professor Anita Simonds, which covers, measuring the outcomes of long-term ventilation in adults and children and new models of therapy for individuals like Paul.

The funds raised will go to The Brompton Breathers, to raise money towards the many ongoing research projects and services to support young patients and their families. Find out more here -
