Fundraising at open air cinema at Newark Castle benefits HUG, Fire Fighters Charity and Crohn's and Colitis UK




Three groups have benefited from fundraising at two outdoor cinema events held in Newark Castle grounds over the summer.

The events were organised by HUG (Help Us Grieve) which was set up by Amy Everatt of Langford to help families who have lost a child.

The sale of raffle tickets raised £373.95 each for HUG, the Fire Fighters Charity and Crohn's and Colitis UK.

Amy said they were very grateful to the NFU who sponsored the events this year.

"They have been amazing and we hope to work with them again in the future."

HUG will be included in a television documentary highlighting issues surrounding miscarriage and stillbirth which will be shown next month around Baby Loss Awareness Week (October 9-15).

Filming took part at the Palace Theatre, Newark, in the summer where the HUG Singers meet once a month for a sing song and a catch up.

"It's open to anyone and nobody cares if you can't sing," said Amy.

It is planned that Derrys will be lighting their building on London Road, Newark, pink and blue during the week in support of HUG. Anyone who would like to join them should contact Amy at amy@helpusgrieve.co.uk
