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.
