An outdoor cinema will be held for one night only to raise money for three worthy causes.

Mayor of Havering, Councillor Dilip Patel, has organised for a screening of The Greatest Showman to be shown at the Forest Row Community Centre, Lodge Lane, Collier Row on Friday, September 28 at 7pm.

The event is to raise money for the mayor’s charity appeal which is supporting Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund, Havering Mind and the Rainbow Trust.

The night will also feature a range of entertainment including performances from a drama group, stilt walkers and twirlers.

Cllr Patel said: “I am very much looking forward to this night.

“It will be great to watch this film under the stairs with such a great group of people!”
