Charity Film Screening : Brave Enough by Passion Fruit Pictures
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us for a wonderful evening and watch the full length film, Brave Enough - A Journey Home To Joy, a creative labour of love between mid-life adventurer and environmental activist Jo Moseley, and filmmaker Frit Sarita Tam of Passion Fruit Pictures.
'Brave Enough' is a featurette film showcasing Jo Moseley's 162 mile paddleboarding challenge to become the first woman to complete the coast-to-coast trail across northern England, aged 54. Highlighting the issue of plastic pollution throughout her journey paddling the Leeds & Liverpool canal.
The film share’s Jo's personal journey, from sobbing in the supermarket -overwhelmed by life - to realising her dream to SUP the canals, whilst picking up litter and raising money for the surf therapy charity, The Wave Project and 2MinuteBeachClean Foundation.
Co-hosted by Fiona Orrell, OceanClear, this screening will enable us to raise funds for our chosen charity. A proportion of the ticket price will be donated to the Ribble Rivers Trust, Rivers in the Classroom Project. I believe that maintaining a strong connection to the outdoors is vital for our well-being, but also witnessing the impact of issues such as plastic pollution first hand, only serves as a reminder to treat our natural environment with the respect it deserves. Not all children have regular access to nature and education is key, which is why we hold great appreciation for the work of this particular charity.
An Introduction from Our Chosen Charity
Ribble Rivers Trust has been delivering educational activities to primary schools for over a decade and we’re not about to stop now. In fact, we just want to keep expanding to reach more and more children and young people in the Ribble Catchment! One of our most popular projects is Trout in the Classroom, which runs during the spring term and enables pupils to observe the trout’s life cycle as it unfolds in their classroom. This year, we have ten schools taking part across Slaidburn, Chipping, Clitheroe, Bolton, Chorley, and Burnley. On top of Trout in the Classroom, we offer several half- or full-day educational activities to our future Guardians of the River which can be adapted to the school or age of pupils. Some of our key take-home messages for pupils include actions that they and their parents can carry out from home to create healthier rivers. Schools can also get involved with litter picks and tree planting, helping us to create a better river for wildlife and people while teaching the pupils about our responsibility to the environment.
