It's World Kindness Day today
To celebrate The Light Cinema, New Brighton is hosting a very special screening of Wonder at 8 pm.
Based on the New York Times bestseller by R J Palacio, Wonder tells the inspiring and heart-warming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.
"If you attend the showing, all we ask is that before or after the film you give generously to our chosen charity Alder Hey’s cranio-facial unit. The NHS has designated Alder Hey as one of only four hospitals in England and Wales who have the required infrastructure, expertise and experience to treat rare congenital cranio-facial conditions including hemifacial microsomia and Treacher Collins syndrome - which primarily affect the face, ears, jaws and teeth. Alder Hey's cranio-facial unit also treat head and facial injuries, and other rare conditions like tumours and cysts."
All proceeds for this screening will be donated to the Cranio-Facial Department at Alder Hey Hospital.
Tickets are free, but must be booked and collected in person from the Light Cinema New Brighton. Maximum of 4 tickets per person. Suggested donation (cash on the night) of £5.00.
