Breast cancer charity raises over £4,000 with private screening of Skyfall

Birmingham-based charity, Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer, has raised vital funds with a private screening of the newest film in the James Bond series.

Held at The Electric Cinema in the city’s Southside district, guests were greeted with a classic Martini, shaken not stirred, before viewing a private screening of Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig and Naomi Harris.

The sell-out event was organised and hosted by Charlotte Harper, Andrew McGrath and Alex Harper; and with tickets priced at £50 each or £200 for exclusive sofa seating for two, a total of £4,170 was raised for the charity.

Following the screening, a reception at Bank Restaurant and Bar in Brindley Place saw guests enjoy drinks, nibbles and music as they continued to show support for the cause.

Veronica Kumeta, co-founder and chairman of the charity, said: “I’d like to thank Andrew, Charlotte and Alex for making the event a huge success. ‘Bond girls’ are renowned for being glamorous and so it was fabulous to see so many of the city’s most stylish ladies turn out to support the charity. It was an amazing night and the amount we raised was outstanding. It will definitely help us to reach our £1 million goal.”

All proceeds raised by Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer are used to provide equipment above and beyond NHS means for the Queen Elizabeth cancer unit. This event was held as part of the charity’s £1 Million Appeal which launched last month.
