Counselling helps people to deal with their feelings and responses, solve problems and create positive change in their lives. We’re looking for thrill seekers and those who want to conquer their fear of heights to become fundraising heroes by doing a sponsored tandem skydive. This year we’re making it bigger and better with New Zealand’s highest skydive from 20,000 feet. The monies raised will enable us to continue to provide counselling to those who need it most and yet often least able to afford it. For many people, the bravest step they will ever take in their life is the one toward asking for help. For others, the bravest step they will ever take is the jump from a perfectly good aeroplane.
By pledging to do a sponsored skydive you can raise money to provide free counselling sessions for couples, families and individuals. This is your opportunity to experience the thrill of a tandem skydive while supporting families. You can sign up here to start fundraising - the minimum fundraising target is $995 and you will experience New Zealand’s highest skydive from 20,000 feet for FREE.

There will be great raffles and prizes to be won and you get to be amongst the very first to watch this highly anticipated film that promises to be a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. The movie traces the meteoric rise of Queen through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near implosion as Freddie’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in rock history, whilst facing a life-threatening illness

Date: Thursday 1 November
Time: 7.00pm VIP reception for 8.00pm film start
Location: Event Cinemas, 77 Broadway, Newmarket
Price: $40 per ticket including a glass of wine/beer or non-alcoholic beverage and popcorn. There will be cool prizes and raffles too.

This movie has been so highly anticipated that tickets went on sale 3 months ago in London, and the world premiere is being held at Wembley Stadium – the site of Queen’s famous Live Aid show.

About Home and Family Counselling: Home and Family Counselling is a charity that provides accessible counselling for couples, individuals and children across 3 centres located in Auckland, North Shore and Hibiscus Coast. They are NZ’s second oldest charity and celebrate turning 125 years old this year. Event proceeds will support counselling for couples, families and individuals in our community.

Based on the critically acclaimed, Man Booker prize shortlisted novel by Penelope Fitzgerald, The Bookshop is set in a small coastal Suffolk town in 1959.

The movie features Emily Mortimer as Florence Green, a middle-aged widow who decides to open a bookshop in an old abandoned house, Patricia Clarkson as the influential and ambitious Violet Gamart who intends to set up an arts centre in the ghostly house, and Bill Nighy as Edmund Brundish, the MP nephew who sponsors a bill to empower local councils to purchase any historical building that has been vacant or uninhabited for five years.

Join us at the Bridgeway Theatre for this movie fundraiser to see what will happen when the bill is passed and Florence is evicted! The proceeds will help us to make a positive change in people's lives and support the great work of Home and Family Counselling.

Tickets are $30 including a free glass of wine/beer or non-alcohol beverage. Great raffles and terrific spot prizes too.
