Luna Kids Cinema has partnered with Save the Children for the second year running to help spread the magic of film for children and families. Save the Children believe that children’s potential is our brightest hope for a better future. That’s why we fight for children every day, standing by their side in the toughest places, and giving them a platform to raise their voice.

Every pound raised will ensure that children don’t just survive, but thrive, so that they can realise their full potential and go on to change the world. Please donate generously to play your part and help us change children’s lives for the better.

The Save the Children Fund is a charity registered in England and Wales (213890) and Scotland (SC039570). A portion of ticket proceeds from each Luna Kids Cinema ticket purchased goes directly to Save the Children.
