Fundraiser: Movie Night 'The Father' Lighthouse Petone from 5.15pm Thurs 15 April
On Thursday 15 April from 5.15pm at Lighthouse Cinema in Petone, Dementia Wellington is holding a special screening of the new movie 'The Father', a new movie starring Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman which deals with some of the complexities of living with dementia. Early reports of the movie are saying that it's an accurate portrayal of the experience of dementia which should result in some interesting conversations. With such big stars this movie is likely to be a popular one. Check out the movie trailer here. We are so grateful to Beverley Jeffery, a member of the Lower Hutt supporter group and her mother's fulltime carer, who is donating her time to organise this for us.
Tickets are $25 (including GST and service charges) and the movie starts at 6pm but come to the cinema from 5.15pm to mingle and for some spot prizes on the night. This event is a great opportunity to contribute to our fundraising and to enlighten family members and friends about dementia.
