Catch a movie and support Plan over the Bank Holiday weekend

23/08/2011

This Bank Holiday weekend your local cinema may be running special fund-raising events for Plan. Picturehouse Cinemas began supporting Plan UK in summer 2008 and since then have raised over £65,000 to help us bring water to communities in the Dosso region of West Niger, one of the driest regions in the world.

Young woman carrying waterIn partnership with Plan, Picturehouse Cinemas launched their own brand of water: 10p from every bottle of water bought at a Picturehouse Cinema is used by Plan UK to provide access to clean drinking water and sanitation to several communities in Niger. So far they have funded the drilling of three boreholes which supply clean water to hundreds of people who used to have to walk miles to collect water which wasn't fit for drinking.

This weekend, in addition to selling the special brand of water, the cinemas, which are located around the UK from Aberdeen to Southampton, are planning some special fund-raising activities, including quizzes, special screenings, raffles, face painting, cake sales, auctions, wine tasting and barbeques. Contact your local Picturehouse cinema to find out more or go to www.picturehouses.co.uk.
