Friday February 3rd sees a sneak preview of the “The Thin Green Line” at Ventnor Library.
Local community-based charity The Footprint Trust and Ventnor based filmmakers Utility Films have teamed up to produce a 60 minute documentary to celebrate all that is ecologically ground-breaking on the Isle of Wight.
The documentary features individuals, businesses, schools and voluntary organisations that are doing something positive for their local community and the wider environment.
The film will be broadcast later in the year but why not take the opportunity of a sneak preview? The event is free with donations going to support the work of Samaritans.
The Director of Isle of Wight Samaritans said “We are delighted to be supported in this way. Samaritans 18,750 volunteers support 5 million calls a year from people across the UK who are struggling to cope. We provide hope and comfort for people 24 hours a day, 365days year. It costs £10 million every year just to keep our telephone lines open. 96 per cent of this comes from voluntary donations. By supporting Feel Good Friday you’ll be helping us to continue providing our life saving service for the millions of cries for help we receive each year. £3.88 pays for one call to be answered by a volunteer. £100 pays to recruit 5 new volunteers. £1000 helps run the service for 12 hours. Every penny is vital for our life-saving service – thank you for your support”
The film begins at 7.30pm and will be introduced by Ray Harrington-Vail of the Footprint Trust.
