Our Charity Donations

Saturday, 23 February 2008 08:28

From the very beginning the charity fund-raisng taken on by the annual Cult TV Weekenders were a prime reason for running our events. That spirit continues with the new Cineology TV Weekenders...

 

During its 14 years, the Cult TV Festival Weekenders raised over £51,000 for various charities. We would like to thank all the attendees who have supported us throughout the years as well as the many guests and celebrities who have provided numerous items for the charity auctions.  And now, we continue those fund raising efforts with the Cineology TV Weekenders.
