“It was such a wonderful night and we are so grateful to Jason and his fiancée Sian Bailey for putting the evening together and enlisting the help of their talented friends, who all gave of their time for free on our behalf,” says Stepping Stone CEO, Tersia Burger. “We all enjoyed a good dose of laughter, which truly is the best medicine.”
“Brian would have absolutely loved it and been so overwhelmed by the number of people who came to honour him,” says the late Brian Wallace’s wife, Lee. “He had a great sense of humour and he would have been so proud of his friend for giving back to hospice. We were treated like family while Brian was at Stepping Stone Hospice. The staff there showed us that it’s not about dying – it’s about the life you have left.”
Jason Goliath has promised to make this an annual event on the Stepping Stone Hospice calendar. And if this first show is anything to go by, then comedy lovers will definitely not want to miss the next one.
