AN AWARD-winning Coventry film maker is using his movie premiere night in the city to raise funds for The Myton Hospices.
Lee Greenhough will be unveiling his debut feature film – A Kidnap – at Square One on Saturday October 30.
And he is urging film lovers and Myton supporters to buy a ticket to the event to raise funds for the hospices in Myton, Rugby and Coventry.
As well as the film premiere, the red-carpet occasion will feature live music from local band Ruff and Lamb, who also appear on the film soundtrack, a late bar and a charity auction all in aid of Myton.
Lee said: “I’m really hoping for a full house on what promises to be a great night – for me, for the actors, for the guests and for The Myton Hospices.
“This is my first feature-length movie and it is shot using local actors and locations, so I hope it’s something the city of Coventry and the Midlands can be proud of.”
The film itself is a psychological thriller about the kidnap of a teenage brother and sister.
Fund-raising spokesperson Clare Cropp said: “Lee is a long standing Myton supporter and he most recently helped us by hosting a Virtual Quiz in aid of Myton during the Covid-19 pandemic. We can’t thank Lee enough for his ongoing support and wish him every success with the upcoming film premiere.”
