Stand Up for Hope

Comedienne Shappi Khorsandi will host a benefit gig with comedy chums Milton Jones, David Baddiel,Dan Antopolski and Paul Chowdhry in aid of Omid International, a small charity that helps street kids in India and young asylum seekers in the UK.

All funds raised on the evening will help Omid International provide peer mentors, financial, educational and psychological support for vulnerable children in India and the UK, giving them the chance to transform their lives. Omid means hope in Iranian.

Shappi herself was forced to flee from Iran to London after the Islamic Revolution with her family, and understands all too well the culture shock and uncertainty that faces children who arrive in the UK.
