Join us for a night of laughs at Leicester’s The Cookie, during Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival on Friday the 6th of February! Not to be missed and all in aid of Diabetes UK in remembrance of our friend Richard Mayne. www.justgiving.com/Richard-Mayne2
Come and see the up and coming acts which will be showcased all through out the festival!
Richard Mayne died in July 2014 at the age of 20. He was amongst the victims of the MH17 incident over Eastern Ukraine. Mr Mayne grew up in Leicestershire and had previously attended Market Bosworth High School, later attending the Dixie Grammar School. Richard was deputy head boy at the Dixie Grammar School, and earned himself a place at the University of Leeds to study Maths and Finance, where he was performing well.
Richard was an avid rugby player, and had been for many years. He played for his school and for the Market Bosworth Rugby Club, for whom he made more than 200 appearances, lifting the RFU Under-17 National Cup in 2011.
Richard Mayne had also been an active member of Leeds RAG, and in March had travelled to the Everest base camp, raising money for charity Kidasha. Kidasha is a UK-based charity for impoverished children in Nepal, and it is thought Mayne chose them because they are combatting diabetes in children in the area, a condition from which Richard suffered.
Money is now being raised in remembrance of Richard for Diabetes UK because he would want others to live the life he lived.
