Film for Life 2019

The Solas Cancer Support Centre is thrilled to announce that the hugely successful Film for Life will be returning in June 2019.

Tracy McDaid, Manager of the Solas Cancer Support Centre explains more; ‘We are seeking participants to undertake a 6-week training programme where they will be tutored by a professional actor and then have the unique opportunity to star in their very own film.

In March participants will learn what films they will take part in and then training commences for the cast of each film. The film premieres will take place at a glitzy red carpet themed event in the Tower Hotel on Saturday 8th June where our actors will be the stars of the night! No experience is required and participants can apply as a group or individually. The event is open to ages 16 years and over. The inaugural 2017 Film for Life event was great fun and enjoyed by all who took part’.

This exciting event will help fund the activities and services that will be provided by the Solas Cancer Support Centre in 2019. Participants are asked to fundraise €400 in sponsorship and assist in selling tickets for the show and the Solas Cancer Support Centre will offer support and advice to each participant in their fundraising endeavours.

Commenting on The Book Centre’s involvement in this event is Maeve Ryan, Managing Director; ‘We at The Book Centre are thrilled to be the headline sponsor of this fantastic event for the third year. We know how the Solas touches the heart of everyone in our community, and as a locally owned family run business it is so important for us to help our local community through fabulous events like this. We wish all the participants the best of luck, and hope they enjoy the process as well as the big night’.

The Solas Cancer Support Centre offers free cancer support to those affected by cancer, their families and carers in the South East. These services are available in their centre at Williamstown in Waterford City and in their West Waterford service based in the Alternative Health Clinic in Dungarvan.
