Festive feel-good films to drive funds for children’s charity

Monday, 05 November 2018

Glasgow Children’s Hospital charity has announced another run of its popular Drive In Movies at the city’s Riverside Museum.

Running in partnership with The Catherine McEwan Foundation, all money raised from the screenings will go towards supporting brave young patients at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children.

Festive film-lovers can enjoy classic movies under the stars at the iconic Glasgow museum – with screenings of Miracle on 34th Street, Elf, Home Alone and The Greatest Showman, running over three days from 14th-16th December.

Eight-year-old Caleb Miller, a patient at the Royal Hospital for Children – and designer of Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity’s exclusive Christmas card – enjoyed last year’s screening of Home Alone, and is set to return again this year.

His mum, Natalie, said: “Like most families we love a festive film, and since we’ve had so much support from Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity and the teams at the hospital, heading along to the charity’s Drive In Movies in the run-up to Christmas is a must for us.

“Caleb and his brother had a fantastic time last year, so it goes without saying we’ll be back this year to enjoy another movie and do our bit to support the other young patients at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children.”

Kirsten Sinclair, Chief Operating Officer at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “We’re very excited to bring another run of Drive In Movies to the city in partnership with The Catherine McEwan Foundation.

“Last year’s screenings were hugely popular, so we expect this year to be another sell-out success. Not only is it a perfect family Christmas night out with a difference, anyone who goes along will get the special festive feeling that comes with giving back to our brave young patients.”

Tickets cost £30 per vehicle plus a £2.50 booking fee. For information on screening dates and times, or to book, visit www.glasgowchildrenshospitalcharity.org/events/christmas-drive-in-movies
