Students help build a brighter future for children in Manchester

Posted on 12th February 2014

Kind-hearted students have teamed up with cinema giant Odeon to raise money for children’s charity the NSPCC at an event to celebrate the release of The Lego Movie.

Defined Events, comprising Events Management students from the University of Chester, has organised three fundraising events for all the family, taking place at the Trafford Centre-based cinema.

Guests can enjoy a range of activities including brick building, face painting, a photograph station and an interactive colouring and creating table.

The events take place from 4pm on Friday, February 14 and Saturday, February 16, and from 10am on Sunday, February 17.

Harriette Knight, one of the organisers, said: “We are very excited to be delivering this event and working in partnership with Odeon.

We hope that not only will the event be a great experience for local families, but that it will raise awareness and much-needed funds to support the work of the NSPCC.”

Tess O’ Callaghan, NSPCC corporate fundraising manager said: “The money raised from this fundraising activity will help the NSPCC to run services for children, young people and families who need us across Manchester and beyond. None of this local work would be possible without the continued generosity of fundraisers and fantastic supporters like Defined Events.”
