DRINKS, nibbles, a great flick and all while helping save lives - what more could you want in a night out?

The Warwick Zonta group will be bringing all that to the Warwick Twin Cinema next Thursday, as it hosts the premiere of the renowned film, Les Miserables.

Member Rosa Hardy said film nights had been a popular fundraiser for the not-for-profit organisation.

"All of the money goes towards our birthing kits, which we prepare and send overseas to third world countries," she said.

The kits, which include items essential for a sterile birth, contain such items as a scalpel, soap, string, gauze and a plastic sheet.

Mrs Hardy said the destination of the birthing kits was constantly changing, with the last batch leaving Warwick before arriving in Nigeria just after Christmas.

"This is such an important cause because we live in a society where we go to sterile hospitals and have babies and some countries have nothing of that kind," she said.

 

Don't miss it

  • Tickets are $20 and can be purchased from Olsen's Hardware or at the door.
  • The event will be held on January 24 at 5.45pm for a 6.30pm start.
