Hollywood's Spider-Man gives families private screening of 'Far From Home' movie
Spider-Man, Tom Holland, hosts Momentum Children's Charity Families for private screening of latest movie 'Spider-Man Far From Home'
Spider-Man star and patron of Momentum Children’s Charity, Tom Holland, spent yesterday, Sunday 14th July, morning hosting a group of excited children at Battersea Power Station Cinema for a private screening of his new movie “Spider-Man: Far From Home”.
Tom took time out from his busy media promotion schedule to mingle with the children, all of whom have cancer or a life challenging condition, and their families, who are receiving support Momentum Children’s Charity.
The private screening was arranged by The Brothers Trust, a charity set up by the Holland family to give something back by supporting small charities who often struggle to be heard or raise funds.
Tom Holland said “I am so happy to spend time with these amazing children and their parents, to watch them enjoy the film and escape from their journey through illness. I know that Momentum Children’s Charity puts on so many events and activities to bring fun, therapy and respite for children and their families. The screening was something I, as Patron of the charity, could offer and I hope the happy memories and the excitement of watching Spider-Man: Far From Home will stay with the families forever.”
Niki Mason, Family Support Worker, Momentum Children’s Charity said, “It was great to see the children’s faces on meeting Tom and his family and the whole event was such a treat for them.” She continued “Tom and the Brothers Trust are ongoing supporters, and hands-on involvement with the children really does have a huge impact. We are also delighted to have just been awarded a £15,000 grant from The Brothers Trust towards our team of Family Support Workers, for which we are immensely grateful.”
