    The Herald‘s Friends of Maggie’s campaign has been announced as the host of the Scottish charity screening of the 22nd James Bond film, Quantum of Solace.

    Like several of the other recently announced regional screenings for Quantum of Solace, this gala event is scheduled to take place on Thursday, 30 October, one day after the 007 film has it’s world premiere and a day before general release in the UK.

    The venue for this regional screening is the Cineworld in Renfield Street, Glasgow. The Aston Martin will be on display and guests will be able to walk up the red carpet and have the chance to pose for photos with the car outside the cinema. There will also be an auction and raffle with lots of exciting prizes.

    Funds raised at the event will benefit The Herald’s Friends of Maggie’s campaign, which was launched earlier this year to mark The Herald’s 225th anniversary. The campaign aims to provide lasting support for people affected by cancer.

    Maggie’s CEO, Laura Lee, said the event promised to be a fabulous night. ‘We’ve always said that fundraising is fun but this takes it to a new level, as you can’t get much better than glamorous outfits, fast cars, free champagne and the chance to see one of the year’s most highly anticipated films before anyone else.’

    ‘It is an evening to indulge yourself but it’s all guilt free as all the money spent on tickets, raffles and auction prizes goes directly towards helping people affected by cancer.’
