PAY IT FORWARD – Give the Magic of Cinema to a Patient Today
If you or a loved-one have ever spent time in hospital or a place of care, what words would you use to describe that experience?
Difficult, scary, boring, lonely…
And how would you describe your last visit to the cinema?
Fun, exciting, relaxing, a good laugh…
At MediCinema we offer patients coping with serious illness or disability the chance to forget their aches and pains and escape into the latest film releases. We need your help to bring the proven therapeutic benefits of MediCinema to more patients across the UK.
"The cinema is great, something to do at night time rather than sitting in your bed...It's better than any other cinema I've been to. I wish I could have one in my house, that's how good it is."
Robert Wright, Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court, Epsom
"I am back in again; this is the 17th time this year. At least I have MediCinema to look forward to."
Callum, Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Glasgow
"MediCinema does a lot...sometimes it's patients' only means of getting to the outside world."
Mr. Levy, St. Thomas' Hospital, London
Become part of our good-will movement PAY IT FORWARD and give the gift of cinema to a long-term patient like Robert, Callum or Mr. Levy who aren't able to watch the latest Bond or see the new 3D release that everyone's talking about at their local cinema.
It costs just £10 a month to fund a patient to attend a screening in one of our state-of-the-art cinemas, where they can enjoy the very latest film releases and a much-needed break from treatment while being supported by specialist nurses.
By donating to MediCinema on a regular basis you can help us to provide many more patients with respite from the difficult reality of serious illness and the chance to enjoy some precious normality with their loved-ones.
So pay your love of film forward this year - sign up today and for just £10 you can give the magic of cinema to a patient every month.
