A cheque for £2,300 has been presented to The Jago Worrall Foundation following a fundraiser hosted by the 
Evergreen Art Cafe.

The money was raised to help two-year-old Jago who suffered serious brain injuries after an accident at his family home.

Jago’s mother Lyn said: “We are bowled over by the generosity that The Evergreen Cafe has shown us and astonished how people can be so caring.

“The Evergreen Cafe really is a wonderful little sanctuary with a stunning collection of art and a fantastic team behind it!’

On August 9 at 11.30am Cineworld in Northampton is opening its doors for the next event for the charity.

An exclusive premiere screening of Disney’s Planes will give people a special chance to see the big film of the summer a whole week before it opens nationally.

Tickets for the screening are available on the night, or in advance, from Cineworld, Sixfields, Northampton or the Daventry Express offices, in exchange for a donation.
