A SPECIAL cinema screening will be held for a terminally ill girl, her friends and family.

Abigail Cook, seven, has been diagnosed with Batten Disease leaving her with learning difficulties, mobility problems and a life expectancy of just 14-years-old.

The Free Press has been backing brave Abigail’s bid to complete a wish list which includes her ultimate dream of swimming with dolphins in Orlando, Florida.

To help towards raising £7,000 needed for the family trip to America, Vue Cinema is offering a special fundraising film event for the Warmsworth youngster and her supporters.

After being asked which film she would like aired, Abigail, of Low West Road, has chosen penguin animated film Happy Feet 2.

The showing will take place on November 11, at 9.45am, at the cinema in Herten Way, Doncaster Leisure Park. Tickets cost £2.

As a special addition, her 11-year-old brother Oliver will be in charge of pressing the button to start the film.

People are invited to call into the cinema to ask about tickets.

Mum Lindsey said: “It should be a really good event and we’re extremely grateful for Vue for their fantastic support. Everyone is welcome.”
