Peter Kay has announced two shows to help raise money for a terminally ill young woman named Laura Nuttall.
The Bolton comedian, who has been on a hiatus since 2017, will be taking part in two Q&As dubbed ‘Doing It For Laura’ at the O2 Apollo in Manchester this summer.
Nuttall, who is currently battling Glioblastoma, has been given a prognosis of just 12-18 months.
When she was 18 years old, she began experiencing headaches that she was convinced were simply ‘freshers’ flu’. But, later on, she was diagnosed with six incurable brain tumours.
Despite her prognosis, the inspirational young woman has continued to fight back and just completed her second year at Manchester University.
As well as focusing on her studies, Nuttall is an ambassador for the Brain Tumour Charity.
The student has exhausted all the treatment options that are available for her condition in the UK, after having had two brain surgeries, 30 sessions of radiotherapy, and 12 months of chemotherapy.
So she is now looking into experimental immunotherapy in Cologne, which means travelling back and forth.
As Kay will be hosting two events for Nuttall later this year, money will be going towards the Brain Tumour Charity, as well as the student’s treatment plan.
Tickets for the event will go on sale on July 30 via Ticketmaster and will be priced at £40.
The charity shows will take place on August 7 and will include a matinee and evening performance.
