Dale Jacobs, a patient of St Mark’s Hospital Foundation, died aged just 26 years old after having bowel cancer. As he was a patient of St Mark's Hospital, Dale's friends and family decided that it would be good to raise some money to help both St Mark's and Macmillan Cancer Support.
So far, an inspirational £45,000 has been raised in Dale’s memory. This year is the final year of fundraising and his friends and family have decided to hold a comedy night in East London at the Kenneth More Theatre, taking place on Sunday 8th June at 7pm.
Hosting is Patrick Monahan, James Alderson, Kate Smurthwaite, Terry Alderton and the legendary Phill Jupitus - perhaps best known for being a team captain on Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Also on the bill there will be one of Britain's top Anglo-Asian comedians - his agents have requested that his identity be kept a mystery until the day of the comedy show.

In the field of bowel cancer treatment, St Mark’s was instrumental in the development of endoscopies to detect and remove pre-cancerous polyps and pioneered the use of keyhole surgery for removing tumours. They are making further developments for bowel illness but need more donations in order to fund these ground breaking projects.
