A big thank you goes to all the people who came to the special screening of I, Daniel Blake on February 11 in Morpeth.
The film was provided by its producers to the West End Food Bank as a thank you for its participation in the making of the film, to raise awareness and funds for this very important charity.
The Greater Morpeth Development Trust was contacted to ascertain if we would be willing to organise a screening in Morpeth through our Morpeth Cinema team. Of course, we were delighted to be able to help and the team was very pleased to be asked to help.
The subject of the struggle of the people living in poverty in our own country resonates with all of us and the response to the ticket sales and donations was phenomenal.
All proceeds from ticket sales were donated to two food banks. Thanks to your generous support, we raised £1,000 to be shared by the West End Food Bank and the Wansbeck Valley Food Bank.
