Can-do at­ti­tude helps the Sal­lies

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The Wat­tie’s Cans Film Fes­ti­val re­turns this year to help New Zealan­ders in need and cel­e­brate the 20th anniversary of the fes­ti­val.

Ki­wis have sup­ported the cause for years by swap­ping a can of food for a movie ticket at the cin­ema.

With each can do­nated Wat­tie’s adds an­other can of their own and all cans are then given to the Sal­va­tion Army Christ­mas ap­peal.

Last year more than 43,000 cans were do­nated by fes­ti­val­go­ers and this year Wat­tie’s hopes for even more do­na­tions.

With the 20th anni- ver­sary loom­ing Wat­ties is plan­ning new ac­tiv­i­ties as part of this fes­ti­val to in­volve more peo­ple in the cause as well as have a lit­tle fun for the cel­e­bra­tion.

From Novem­ber 4 Auck­lan­ders can head to a par­tic­i­pat­ing cin­ema and swap a can for a movie ticket.

On Novem­ber 13 they can re­turn to watch the cho­sen movie.

Read­ing Cin­e­mas, Event Cin­e­mas and Hoyts Cin­e­mas are tak­ing part.
