ST Michael’s House, together with a team of volunteers from Fujitsu, held their annual Christmas cinema event with a private screening of the new festive film, the animated Dr. Seuss’ ‘The Grinch’ at the Savoy Cinema in Dublin. 

This year, over 500 service users enjoyed the biggest day of the St Michael’s House calendar.

Fujitsu, a long standing partner of St Michael’s House, sponsored the event for the seventh year running and provided volunteers on the day to assist service-users into the cinema. 

Every year, this event creates a magical Christmas atmosphere as service users come together to watch the latest December movie release. Special goodie bags were also distributed to all the movie-goers.

Anna Shakespeare, chief executive of St Michael's House said: “We are extremely grateful to the Savoy Cinema who have continued to support this great event every year for the last 34 years. 

“This is a very important part of our community recreational events and cinema is one of our service users’ favourite activities. 

“Equally, we want to extend our gratitude to the team of volunteers in Fujitsu who get involved every year and make this day possible. I am very thankful to all the volunteers for giving their time, making the day even more special.’’

Tony O’Malley, chief executive of Fujitsu Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be able to help St Michael’s House and the great work that they do for their service users. I am also very grateful to all our employees for their volunteer work each year.”
