Businesses in Beverley are supporting their local community by getting behind the Beverley Film Society’s push to raise funds for new equipment.
To celebrate five successful years, and to raise money, the Society is inviting film lovers to a Birthday Party film night on Friday 21st October featuring a special screening of Kevin Macdonald’s film Life in a Day – a montage of real-life clips from around the world filmed on one day last year, plus refreshments, quizzes and prize giveaways.
Chair of the Society, Kenneth Flowers, said:
“The Beverley Film Society has been incredibly successful for many years but to ensure it has a future in the local community we now need to buy our own equipment. This would give us the flexibility to work with other organisation’s events and activities.
Local eatery, Panizzi, in North Bar Within, will be providing delicious snacks for the birthday party. Owner Stuart Fenn said:
“As a local business it’s essential to support our local groups. I would encourage other members of the community to do the same to ensure film in Beverley is something everyone can enjoy for years to come.”
And the birthday gifts keep coming with businesses donating prizes for the competitions on the 21st. Popular restaurant Valencia is providing a meal for two; Poppy Seed is providing a prize of afternoon tea for two, and chic new bakery Coco & Violet is providing tea and cakes for two. Local artist Claire West is kindly donating an original piece of artwork and Capelli has provided a gift voucher for its hair salon near Saturday Market.
Mr Flowers added:
“We have been overwhelmed with the support from businesses who have stepped forward to help us on our fundraising venture, and extend thanks to everyone who has offered help. I encourage all members of the Beverley Film Society past and present to join us on the 21st October for what will be a great night of film.”
The Beverley Old Bookshop in Dyer Lane is a keen supporter of the Film Society and is providing a voucher prize for the fundraising evening and is also selling tickets for the event.
Tickets will give temporary membership to guests for this event only. Priced £10 per person, the money raised will go towards purchasing a complete set of new film equipment for the Society.
Doors open at the Masonic Hall Beverley on 21st October at 6.30pm for the Beverley Film Society Birthday Party. Tickets can also be bought by contacting Cally on T: 01482 870751 / E: email@example.com
