You're invited to our free Bollywood cinema event

15/06/2017

Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Safer Communities Community Interest Company (CIC) are to host a free film evening in Stoke-on-Trent.

“We want to be involved in, and lead activities, that support people in all those areas and we believe that by working together with partners and our communities we can really help to make a difference. Before the film there will be chance to speak to those that can help if you have a health or well-being related worry."

Denise Rowe, Safer Communities CIC

A Bollywood cinema screening of U Me aur Hum will be held at The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Hanley on Friday July 7 from 5pm (the film starts at 6pm).

The event aims to reach out to the Asian community to raise awareness about a number of health issues and the help on offer to support those affected by them. These include Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease, mental health, prostate cancer, and breast cancer, with a number of organisations on hand to provide information and advice, before and after the film.

Denise Rowe, Safer Communities CIC, said: “We know that these health issues can contribute to people becoming less safe, along with isolation, lifestyle and financial worries.

“We want to be involved in, and lead activities, that support people in all those areas and we believe that by working together with partners and our communities we can really help to make a difference. Before the film there will be chance to speak to those that can help if you have a health or well-being related worry.

“Everyone is welcome to the event and there is food available to buy from the Museum cafe, meat or vegetarian curry and a soft drink for £5. So why not come along and make an evening of it? We would be delighted to see you there.
