Spencers are raising laughs along with funds for the British Heart Foundation (BHF) by holding a comedy night on Wednesday, 28th June, at the Royal Lymington Yacht Club.
This Comedy Night is being organised as part of Spencers’ Three Peaks Challenge, launched earlier this year with the goal of raising £20,000 for the BHF in memory of their colleague and friend Justin Hannam who died from a cardiac arrest in September last year.
Others at Spencers were also keen to be involved in the fundraising efforts, including Tracy Harding, Associate Director, Spencers Lettings Office, who has contributed by organising this special Comedy Night. Tracy used to run a monthly comedy club in Lymington, which was always highly successful. Therefore, she approached a London comedy agent she had worked with in the past and they put together a great lineup for Spencers’ Comedy Night.
Tracy Harding says: “The line up are all professional comics travelling around the comedy circuit, including some who have been on TV. However, there are very few opportunities for comics to perform in this particular area, so it is a chance for locals to enjoy an evening of laughter and also an opportunity for the comics to build their following.
“The Royal Lymington Yacht Club have been fantastic, offering us the use of their facilities free of charge and helping us to promote the night. I think Justin would have appreciated it as he had a great sense of humour. If this event is successful, we would love to hold further comedy nights and continue our fundraising efforts for this important cause.”

‘Live, Laugh, Love’ is taken from Bessie Anderson Stanley’s poem Success which seems a fitting accolade to Justin and his approach to life: “He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much… Who has left the world better than he found it…”
