The Christie Charity

It was not our original intention when we started planning the making of our first film drama "Cry England!" to use it to raise money for charity. That was something that was decided by the cast and crew during our get together after the last scene was "in the can". Not only that, but the popular vote was to donate to The Christie Charity.
We have now had collections at two public showings of the film, the first at our premiere on 14th November 2013 and the second at the showing at the Chorlton Film Institute on 19th December 2013.
At both showings, the collecting buckets were out and we raised a certain amount of money, but we have decided to use a slightly different approach through a raffle. We are particularly lucky in as much as we have been offered some generous prizes, the not least being a painting of the Chorlton Green Churchyard lychgate by artist, Peter Topping, probably one of the most iconic structures in Chorlton, representing all that is left of what is the site of the original St Clement's Church. The total value of the prizes offered so far amounts to over £200.
The raffle tickets are currently being printed and should be available immediately after Christmas for sale until the draw at The Christie Charity on 7th March 2014.
Wouldn't it be great if we could raise our target of £2,000 from all of the collections made, for donation to such a worthwhile cause?
