Quantum of Solace Fundraiser

Bond fans were treated to a night of thrills and glamour on Friday 31st October, as a charity screening of Quantum of Solace was held at the Reel Cinema in the Phoenix Leisure Centre, Crewe.

115 cinema-goers in black tie and cocktail dresses attended the event in support of Climb (Children Living with Inherited Metabolic Diseases), raising a total of £2,133 for the charity.

As well as from ticket sales, money was raised through donations, a raffle, and an auction of items such as Quantum of Solace posters, signed Gordon Ramsay and Ricky Gervais memorabilia, and a signed Phil Collins doodle.

The evening’s entertainment also included champagne and canapes for a real James Bond glamour.

Local MP Edward Timpson and mayor Brian Silvester showed their support by attending the evening, which was heralded as a success by CLIMB vice-president Peter Greene.

This is the second time such an event has been held at the Reel Cinema — the first, a screening of Mamma Mia! in July, raised £1,269.

Climb is a national organisation working on behalf of children, young people, families, carers and support groups affected by metabolic diseases (genetic disorders). They currently provide information, advice and support on over 730 metabolic diseases. For more information, visit www.climb.org.uk.
