Hume Bank hosted its annual charity movie evening at the Albury Regent Cinema on Wednesday, 4th May in support of Older Persons Mental Health Service (OPMHS), Albury Wodonga Health.
A sell-out crowd of over 130 people attended Hume’s charity movie evening which featured the emotional, powerhouse film, Still Alice. The film stars Oscar winning actress Julianne Moore as Alice Howland, a renowned linguistics professor who learns she has early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Her struggle to stay connected to who she once was is frightening, heartbreaking and inspiring.
Hume raised $3,500 with all profits from the evening going towards OPMHS, a community based service for people over the age of 65, who may be experiencing issues with their mental health.
“The funds raised from the evening will go towards the services ‘Healthy and Wise Program’ and will cover running costs such as; printing of booklets, venue hire, catering, speakers and advertising. We are also planning to purchase a new portable projector to assist in our presentations” shared Sandra Davidson, Operations Director OPMHS.
“We are very fortunate to have a local health service which specifically helps the elderly community. We are proud to support Sandra Davidson and the team at the OPMHS so they can make a difference to those who might not have thought about seeking help,” explained David Marshall, Hume Bank Chief Executive Officer.
