The next presentation from the Mary How Trust Film Society will be 45 Years (15) on Tuesday, January 26, at West Chiltington Village Hall, with screenings at 3pm and 7.30pm.

Trust marketing and fundraising manager Roanne Moore-Loizides said: “The Mary How Trust Film Society was established in 1989 by a group of local film enthusiasts who wanted to bring great films into the heart of the community and raise money for the Mary How Trust for Cancer Prevention. It offers a quality cinema experience with Dolby sound in a carpeted auditorium and remains the only cinema for charity in West Sussex where 100 per cent of the net proceeds go to charity: the funds raised go directly to the Mary How Trust.

“The Mary How Trust aims to spot the early signs of cancer and other life-threatening illnesses through health screenings for which we invite donations based on your ability to pay.

“Donations, fundraising, grants and gifts in wills sustain our service. Our supporters make a lasting difference, helping us to give people a healthier future.”

Tickets are available on the door and from the Mary How Trust ticket hotline on 01798 877646; The Mary How Trust screening rooms and charity shop; The Card Centre, Storrington; and Cherilyn/Nisa Local, West Chiltington.

Tickets cost £6. With a loyalty card, you can watch six films and get your seventh free.
