If you’re thinking of taking the kids to the movies these school holidays, why not come along to one of our Movie Fundraiser sessions in The Theatre at Bankstown Sports, and support some great local schools and charities.
On Sunday 7 July, there will be an 11am screening of Dumbo to raise funds for St Jerome’s Catholic Primary School in Punchbowl, and on Tuesday 9 July, Milperra Public School will be hosting an 11am fundraising session of Wonder Park.
On Thursday 11 July, there will be an 8.30pm session of Avengers: End Game, raising funds for the Sydney Basket Brigade. This non-profit organisation is run by volunteers who anonymously deliver food, clothing, toys and hope to those who need it most. They deliberately seek out recipients in the community who might otherwise fall through the cracks and who may not seek charity, such as the elderly, the homeless and refugees.
On Friday 12 July, there will be a 1.30pm screening of Wonder Park for The Movement, a registered not-for-profit charity that helps those in need and people going through financial hardship. This group offers assistance with food hampers, clothing and furniture, and they are based in Bankstown.
And on Sunday 14 July, the Make-A-Wish Foundation will host a 1.30pm session of Dumbo to raise funds to grant wishes for Australian children who are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Since 1985, the WishForce has delivered more than 10,000 life-changing wishes, putting smiles on the faces of seriously ill kids.
