Hundreds of pounds have been raised at a special premiere screening of the film Planes in aid of The Jago Worrall Foundatiotion.
The screening of the Disney film on Friday boosted the charity funds by more than £500. The campaign was launched by the Gusher in January to help two-year-old Jago following an accident at his family home.
Jago’s brothers Riley and Ferdie were the guests of honour at the screening held by Cineworld in Sixfields, Northampton. The brothers and their freinds were taken by limousine provided courtesy of Daventry Limo Hire (www.daventrylimo.co.uk) and given the red carpet treatment on arrival at the venue.
From there, Riley and Ferdie were given a tour behind the scenes of the cinema and also a chance to serve drinks and popcorn to take into the screening. They were also sent home with goodie bags each.
Around 90 people attended the screening in exchange for a donation to the charity. Jago’s father Barney Worrall said: “It was a great day. Riley and Ferdie had a great time.
“Jago had a very calm experience as well which was great. The last time we went to the cinema it was before Jago’s accident and we had never thought about taking him there. The cinema was able to accommodate him with no problems.
“I am really pleased with the total raised and it just shows how generous people are in supporting the cause.”
Jules Dodds, the deputy manager at Cineworld said: “I am very pleased with how it went. We wanted to raise awareness of the cause and we’ve done that.”
