A Brampton family is hoping laughter will provide the funds needed to help a playgroup continue providing care for the village's children.

Laurence Miller and Vic Marshall said they want to raise money for Brampton Playgroup as a thank you for the dedication and commitment it has shown towards educating their three-year-old son Ethan, who has ADHD and slight autism.

To say thank you Mr Miller has organised a comedy night - featuring comedian Johnny Dee - to take place at Brampton Millennium Centre this Friday.

Mr Miller, 40, said: "Ethan can be hard work but the staff at the playgroup have worked hard with him and have been very patient. He is two years behind other children his age but thanks to the one-to- one tuition he receives at the playgroup, he is able to interact with other children his age.

"He has come on leaps and bounds and I put that down to the work of the staff at the playgroup. We owe them so much and would have been lost without them."

The money raised will be used by the playgroup to purchase new equipment.
