The ODEON Dorchester has hosted a sell-out screening of hit Disney film Frozen in aid of Julia’s House, Dorset’s only hospice dedicated to children with life-limiting conditions, and due to overwhelming success a second screening is set to take place in the autumn.
With the support of children’s party planners Fairytales Parties, which brought the film’s stars Elsa and Anna to the event to meet the audience, and Toys R Us and Boo’s toy shop, which donated Frozen prizes for a raffle, the whole event managed to raise £475.54 for Julia’s House.
Alan Escott, general manager at the ODEON Dorchester, says: “We are very proud that our partnership with Julia’s House is proving so beneficial for the charity and we’d like to thank our cinema-goers for supporting Friday’s event.
He added: “Due to the phenomenal response the charity screening of Frozen received, we are delighted to be hosting a second screening in aid of Julia’s House in the autumn.”
Donna Sibley of Julia’s House, said: “We were thrilled with the response and with the amount of money raised. We’d like to thank everyone, including our Dorchester Friends Group for making this happen. We already have a waiting list for the next screening, so we are poised to do it all over again!
Donna added; ”It is lovely to think that in addition to being a great family event, it was also helping families all over Dorset that need the support of Julia’s House.”
ODEON Dorchester is providing families with another opportunity to re-live the magic by hosting a second charity screening of Frozen this autumn for Julia’s House. The date is yet to be confirmed, but tickets will be available from Donna on 01202 644220, with all proceeds going to Julia’s House.
