Sophea Meas from Cambodia
Cambodian group

Haddenham's own pop-up cinema will come into being this Saturday evening, 29th March, when St Mary's Centre will be equipped with all the kit for a full surround sound cinematic event.

The occasion will be a fundraiser organised by local resident Sally Corfe, on behalf of Sophea Meas, an Information Officer based at Kone Kmeng, in Cambodia.

Sophea is a talented group leader, musician, dancer, translator, all round good guy with a deep faith, great sense of humour and happy disposition!

2011 saw devastating flooding across Cambodia and Sophea's family lost everything, including their rice crop and their seed rice. Consequently Sophea gave his family all of the money he had saved up in order to put himself through university, and his dream seemed to be over!

But 2012 saw Sophea start university thanks to the generous donations from friends here in Haddenham. His university course costs $500 per year (around £350) and he is now half way through.

Come and hear the latest from Sophea, and watch a superb, Oscar winning film about Cambodia filmed in 1984, just 5 years after the genocide that devastated the country. The film is a Hollywood blockbuster, but our licence to present the film to an audience prevents us from stating the title. But trust us, this is a most memorable film!

There will be tasters of Cambodian food to try too.

Please donate as much as you can afford to help a wonderful young man fulfil his dream of finishing university and work to improve the country that he loves.

Thank you so much.

The film presentation starts at 7pm. To book your place please call Sally Corfe Tel 292883 or email corfes@homecall.co.uk Limited places so book soon!
