Peter Kay has spoken out for the first time since cancelling his UK tour – to announce a one-off charity screening of Car Share in Blackpool.
The Bolton-based comedian scrapped his massive stand-up tour in November much to the disappointment of fans , citing family reasons.
Peter has not tweeted since but today took to the social media platform to announce a brilliant new charity show.
Four episodes of Car Share will be screened at Blackpool Opera House on Saturday, April 7. It will include the premiere of two brand new episodes; ‘Car Share: Unscripted’ and the highly anticipated series finale.
Peter said he was “proud to raise awareness and much needed funds” for The Lily Foundation in supporting the special event.
Peter, 44, said: “The Lily Foundation is an inspiring charity that helps to improve the lives of children with Mitochondrial Disease.
“I’ve had first-hand experience of the foundation’s work and I’m proud to raise both awareness and much needed funds to help with the inspiring work they provide to children and their families.”
