Weston’s Frozen charity screening

PUBLISHED: 08:00 13 June 2014




A CHARITY screening of children’s movie Frozen will be shown at Weston’s Odeon next week.

Eternal winter spells, journeys to find a snow queen and mystical creatures are all part of the Disney film which led to long queues upon its release.

A chance to re-live the magic has been organised by 32-year-old Kelly Hunt who wants to raise cash for a national charity and help her friend’s daughter.

Half of the profits from the tickets will go to Rett UK, which supports youngsters with Rett syndrome –a rare neurological disorder affecting mainly females and very few males.

The other half will go to Megan Shines, a group set up to support Megan Simpson, a 10-year-old who battles the condition.

Kelly said: “Megan came to the school I work at, St Anne’s Primary School in Hewish, and is the daughter of a friend of mine.

“There is a group of us which helps raise cash for the two organisations and the Odeon event is my brainchild.”

The showing for the PG film will be on June 22 at 9am. Tickets, priced £2 for children and £1 for adults, are available by calling Kelly on 075276 19410.
