From law to laughs for hospice


A SOLICITOR is swapping justice for jokes to boost a children’s hospice.

Chris Sellars, an executive director at Banner Jones in Chesterfield, will stand up and deliver a five minute comedy set in front of a live audience plus judges.

The challenge has been organised by Bluebell Wood, the only children’s hospice that covers Derbyshire.

“Of course it’s very different and out of your comfort zone”, said dad Chris, 44, of Chesterfield.

“I have done other things for charity before and that sort of helps a little bit.”

Stand Up for Bluebell Wood includes training sessions and takes place at the Consort Hotel, Rotherham, on Thursday October 13.
