BAFTA Children's Hospice Screenings

8 June 2015

Film screenings for children with life limiting conditions held throughout the UK.

Since 2009 BAFTA has hosted Children’s Hospice Screenings around the UK for children with life limiting conditions and their families, made possible by the fundraising efforts of BAFTA members who ran the Virgin London Marathon.

Screenings are created with the needs of the guests in mind, with venues being made easily accessible and exclusively available to famililes in order that they feel comfortable in their surroundings and seasonal activities and entertainment provided to create a really special event.

Thank you for arranging such a fantastic morning at the cinema to see Cinderella for all of the families who use the Hospice (Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice). It was such a treat for us to get out as a family and it was Emily's first trip to the cinema and I can wholeheartedly say that she loved it! Being able to make precious family memories is so important to families like ours. Thank you :-)
