Agile Comms brought something new to the local calendar with the launch of their inaugural Comedy, Conversations and Canapes event.
The start-up business telecoms company’s informal networking-comedy-fundraiser was supported by over 70 representatives from the local business community and raised over £1,200 for their charity partner Young Devon.
Three fantastic comedians – David Arnold, Tom Glover and Christian Russel-Pollock from 1st Edition Comedy – took to the stage at The Loft on Sutton Harbour to entertain the audience, who were left in stitches!
There was also a raffle which saw winners take home a fantastic range of prizes, generously donated by friends and clients of Agile Comms, including signed memorabilia from Plymouth Argyle, Exeter Chiefs, Plymouth Albion and Plymouth City Patriots.
Post-comedy drinks were kindly sponsored by Triangle Networks, which allowed the conversation and laughs to continue flowing late into the evening.
Ollie Jackman, Director of Agile Comms, said: “It’s great to help our business community connect and have some fun, and we’ve been touched by the support of our friends and network in putting on this event.
“The response to the event has been fantastic so we’re looking to do the next one in November when we’ll also be celebrating our first anniversary in business.”
Andy Moreman, CEO of Young Devon, added: “Huge thanks to Ollie and James Fisher at Agile for allowing us to explain the essential work that Young Devon does.
“Over the past year we’ve helped over 2,000 young people with services such as wellbeing support, homelessness prevention and skills development as well as promoting the voice of young people across our region.”
