Do you think of yourself as a bit of a movie buff? Do you love nothing more than curling up on the couch with a film on the TV? Then why not consider holding a charity movie marathon for your friends and family.
A movie marathon is a great way to spend time with your friends and family without having to leave the comfort of your own home. And what’s more, it’s a fun way to raise money for The Christie in support of cancer patients.
First, you’ll need to choose your films. If you’re going for the long haul, think about showing movies in a series – everything from the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the Harry Potter series, for example.
You could also pick your movies based on a theme or time of year, like a Halloween or Christmas movie marathon.
Next, choose a date and time for your event, and make some DIY posters for your movie marathon. You could even make your own cinema tickets to sell to your friends and family to join the movie marathon.
If you and your family or friends can’t all be together at the moment, you can hold a virtual movie marathon. You can do this on Zoom, Skype or another video messaging service.
Lastly, all that’s left to do is close the curtains, snuggle up and start watching and chatting away!
If you’re hosting a movie marathon night for The Christie, make sure to get in touch and request a fundraising pack from us. We can send you out a free Christie t-shirt to wear during the event and a sponsor form to collect all of your money.
