A children’s hospice in Newcastle is hoping that public generosity will allow them to equip their new cinema room with a high-tech projector.

ST OSWALD’S Hospice in Gosforth has recently had its cinema room funded by the charity campaign run by the British AV industry, that is aiming to provide cinema facilities in the nation’s children’ hospices in conjunction with the group Together for Short Lives.

Ian Morrish, the AV industry representative who is overseeing cinema projects in three children’s hospices around the country, said the room still needs a new projector, however. He said he hope the generosity that has been shown by the industry so far can help complete the room.

“The AV industry is coming together as a powerful, charitable force to bring the home cinema experience into the lives of terminally ill children,” he explained. “The response we have had so far has been very positive, and I am delighted that so many companies are offering their products and services without any hesitation.”

David Slater has been responsible for sourcing all the material needed for the room, but so far, he said, they have not been able to get their hands on a projector.
