Gillespie News: Madagascar Film Night

Madagascar Film Night

We raised a phenomenal £261.91 for Azafady! Louise from Azafady came along to tell us a bit about what Azafady’s about. She brought a lemur suit, and near enough everyone tried it on.

We showed Madagascar 1, 2 and 3 so people had more of a variety to choose from, and they chose which one they wanted to watch. The first interval went great, and the second one did too, then the third one we ran out of a few things! But then we got more money as we sold almost everything. We had popcorn, squash, persimmon, apple, mango, pineapple, banana and peaches. We chose these fruit because they grow in Madagascar.

We made posters to show where the films were, and who in the Management Committee was in charge of each screen. Cutting up the fruit, making the drinks, testing the films and setting the chairs up was quite tiring. Everyone in the Lab_13 Committee organised it and others also helped out.

Everyone in the committee came to the meeting at 8.15am the next day, and we evaluated the Madagascar Film Night to see how we did. Here are the things we thought went well:

  • Prices were sensible
  • We raised a lot of money
  • The breaks were organised
  • Food was organised
  • We gave the right amount of change (very important!)
  • We controlled the screens
  • We made hardly any mess
  • Mostly everything sold.

Things that could have gone better:

  • Some children were making noise
  • We ran out of popcorn
  • Some children brought food into the classrooms

If we do it again, we should pop more corn!
