Over 500 St. Michael’s House’s children and adults enjoyed the biggest day of the St. Michael’s House calendar at the Savoy Cinema. The movie Frozen 2 was the festive film 2018.
The Savoy, the longest running cinema in Dublin, celebrates 35 years of supporting this annual event for St. Michael’s House. Fujitsu, a long standing partner of St Michael’s House sponsored the event for the 8th year running and provided volunteers on the day to assist service-users into the cinema. The Civil Defence support all our children and adults safety into the movie theatres. The local Gardai support with our wheelchair accessible buses and traffic concerns on the morning.
Every year, this event creates a magical Christmas atmosphere, as service users come together to watch the latest December movie release. Special goodie bags were also distributed to all the movie-goers by our Christmas clowns. Our Clowns add ballooons , songs and cheer to this event each year.
Tony O’Malley, CEO of Fujitsu Ireland, said: “We are delighted to support St. Michael’s House again this year with its Christmas Matinee. It’s an event Fujitsu looks forward to every year as it gives us the opportunity to meet with the staff and service users and kick off the Christmas festivities together. It’s a great pleasure to contribute to such a worthwhile cause such as St Michael’s House.”
