Organisers of a charity screening of the new James Bond film in Canterbury have been left shaken and stirred by the amount it raised.
The event in aid of the NSPCC at the Odeon cinema collected £5,528 for the charity and will help support its new Child Voice campaign.
It was organised by the charity’s Canterbury branch and attended by more than 300 supporters who came dressed in Bond style suits and bow ties and glamorous dresses.
After the film, they enjoyed a reception at the Chaucer Hotel where the Lord Mayor, Cllr Carolyn Parry, drew prizes in the raffle, including the star prize of a weekend in the Mediterranean on a luxury yacht worth £2,500, won by Emily Briddle from Canterbury.
Branch chairman Max Tillings said: “It was a fantastic evening and to raise more than £5,000 is magnificent.”
