Aberdeenshire North Foodbank has arranged a free community film screening that will take place in Ellon later this month.

The firm has arranged a screening of I, Daniel Blake at Ellon Parish Church on Sunday, April 23.

There will be 200 seats free to members of the community available on the day.

Doors will open at 2.40pm and the movie will start at 3pm.

Cash or tinned food donations will be welcome on the day.

A spokesperson for Aberdeenshire North Foodbank said: “We have arranged a free community film screening of the award winning movie I, Daniel Blake in a bid to raise awareness of situations that everyday people find themselves as shown in the film, as well as raising awareness of the Aberdeenshire North Foodbank which operates centres in Ellon, Inverurie and Huntly.”

The movie (certificate 15) follows 59-year-old Daniel Blake who had worked as a joiner most of his life in the North East of England who needed help from the State for the first time following an illness.

He crosses paths with a single mother, Katie, and her two children, Daisy and Dylan.

The pair find themselves caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy now played out in modern day Britain.
