From Emily Mott:
Dear Friends-We’re raising important funds for trees and hope you can join us for a special screening of Woman at War on October 8th, 8pm.We are delighted to announce our first Icelandic film, hailed as a classic of our time, both thrilling and darkly comic. Juxtaposed between the breathtaking beauty of rural Iceland and industrial power plants, this film is a rare breed – a crowd pleaser about climate change! Halldóra Geirharosdóttir is brilliant as the mother of all green goddesses, taking on the government and big business as a fearsome eco-warrior, belying her public persona as mild mannered choir director, on a quest to adopt a child, This film was a favourite of the critics and has been called ‘a subversive romp’ … ‘moving, embracing, weirdly beautiful with a mythic feel’. The Guardian Do come and join us for a shot of vodka and something a little different.Compton and Up Marden School Hall, doors and bar open at 7:30pm and the film commences at 8pm. Tickets £6 non-members, £5 members. All welcome. Please note this film is sub-titled.All proceeds to go to The Woodland Trust. Please spread the word and help us get seats on chairs and trees in the ground!The Compton Film ClubCompton and Up Marden CE School, School Lane, Compton, Chichester, West Sussex PO18 9EZ
THE WOODLAND TRUST
Trees eat C02 for breakfast. Help us plant more of them
Capturing and storing carbon in the atmosphere is vital in the fight against climate change. Trees eat CO2 for breakfast and by making a donation to the Woodland Trust you are helping us plant trees and protect woodland across the UK, locking up carbon and creating havens of green space for wildlife and people.
The average UK individual is directly responsible for 9 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year.
- Your £100 donation could allow us to plant and protect 100 square metres of woodland – enough to store nearly 4 tonnes of carbon
- Donate £25 and we could plant and protect up to 25 square metres of woodland – enough to store almost 1 tonne of carbon
- A £10 donation could plant and protect trees to store 0.4 tonnes, the equivalent of a return flight to Athens.
