Get Involved

We are an independently funded charity that receives no government or NHS funding and rely solely on donations from the general public, our patrons, corporate partners and the film industry. We fundraise on a continuous basis to keep our MediCinema doors open and ensure our patients never miss a screening. Just £30 will fund the necessary medical care from specialist nurses, support from our Cinema Manager and team and latest blockbusters, to bring a true cinematic experience to our MediCinema goers.

Fundraise

If you're inspired by the work we do and want to fundraise for MediCinema we'd like to hear from you.

You could sign up for one of our challenge events; join our exclusive Red Carpet Club or why not organise your own event in your local community? We're always looking for ways to raise awareness and attract donations so if you have a great idea that you think might help us please get in touch.

Corporate Partnerships

Companies like working with MediCinema - it's an emotive cause that is easily communicated to staff and clients alike, delivering the ultimate feel good factor.

Whether your company's CSR programme has a local or national focus, we provide a unique opportunity to be part of a national campaign that brings an invaluable service and cinematic experience to hospitals and places of care.

We will work closely with you to develop and support your fundraising plans, be it a one-off event or a long-term partnership, and will help identify PR opportunities that support your brand values while inspiring your employees and clients. Get in touch for more information.

Volunteer

Would you like to be part of the MediCinema Family? MediCinema volunteers are vital members of the team, giving their commitment, time and energy on a regular basis.

We have a dedicated team of volunteers who assist at each screening and who are primarily responsible for the transfer of patients to and from the MediCinema and the wards. The role of the volunteer at the screenings is vital: without them, quite simply, many of the patients - especially those in beds and wheelchairs - wouldn't be able to make it down. If you are looking for an activity that brings immediate benefit and pleasure to patients, one that helps them escape the tedium of the ward, then volunteering at the screenings could be for you.

We also have many volunteers who donate their time in lots of other ways including helping out in our core functions in the office or sharing professional expertise and skills to enhance our work . Many volunteers choose to support our fundraising - organising events, being part of our gala committees or bringing in key contacts who may be interested in supporting MediCinema directly or through their company.

However you feel you would like to help, we would like to hear from you, so please get in touch for more information.

Take a look below to find out what our volunteer's say about their work at MediCinema.

Losing themselves in the magic of cinema helps patients forget their pains and illnesses for a couple of hours. It's a real tonic to them and their visitors - and for me personally, very rewarding.

- Rita Culwick, Cinema Volunteer

From an early age I have admired people that care for others. MediCinema has given me the chance to fulfil a major ambition of mine to help others and in the process I have obtained a real sense of achievement and well being. Knowing you're making people's stay in Hospital a little more bearable and seeing how much better they feel after coming down to the cinema is priceless

- Jo Fearnley, Cinema Volunteer
