The first ever King's Lynn screening of award-winning film I, Daniel Blake will take place this week to raise money for a homeless charity.
Taking place on Friday, March 16, at the Guildhall of St George, proceeds from the screening will go towards the Purfleet Trust.
The money will help provide computer tuition as well as specialist welfare support to individuals.
'We aim to help people with support needs in our community, overcome the very difficulties which Daniel faces in the film,' explains Paula Hall, chief executive of the trust.
A drinks reception with canapes will be held at the adjoining Shakespeare Barn in the Arts Centre from 6pm, followed by the main feature of I, Daniel Blake at 7.30pm.
Tickets for the combined reception and film are £10 and available from the Corn Exchange box office. Seats for the film alone will be available for a donation of £5 on the door and also from the box office.
