Avengers screening at St Michael’s
For Avengers: Endgame, Georgian Smith (better known as George), was unable to join her family for their tradition of visiting the cinema to watch the latest instalment from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
During her break, our kind-hearted Health Care Assistant Poppy Morgan, set out on a mission to bring the big screen to George.
With a little help from other staff, St Michael’s made contact with Disney and arrangements were put in place for a Marvel team member to visit the Hospice.
Poppy’s efforts paid off.
George, who watched the film yesterday, with her daughter Kirsty, said, ‘It was perfect, probably the most beautiful thing anyone has done for me in a long time. It’s wonderful to know how far people went to make what I thought impossible, possible.
‘The film was fantastic, especially for me as a terminally ill patient. It’s about loss and the love that exists between friends and family when there is little hope left. it’s something my daughters and I can very much relate too. I think that is where the tears came from.’
George and St Michel’s would like to say a blockbuster thank you to Lucas Films, Disney and Marvel for their help in making this extraordinary screening happen.
