LOUTH Film Club has donated takings from its last two shows to two worthy local causes.

The club has donated the £630 proceeds from screenings of Arrietty to Home Start East Lindsey – children from Lacey Gardens went along to 
enjoy the film too.

And the £400 profit from May’s exclusive screening of Juan was handed to the League of Friends of Louth Hospital. Juan’s star, Christopher Maltman, went along to introduce the film and answer audience questions.

Club chairman Alex McMullen said: “Christopher Maltman’s visit was a very special occasion for us and it’s always a pleasure to be able to show films to local schoolchildren. “To also be able to raise money for two great causes at the same time was the icing on the cake.”

The club shows films every other Monday at the Playhouse Cinema and is open to non-members.

Details can be found in the programme, available at the cinema, Louth Library or Off The Beaten Tracks record shop.
