A cranky green Grinch may have been stomping around Century Cinemas today, but it didn’t dull the festive spirit of Rushe to Raise 2019!

The annual movie fundraiser was another great success for local couple Emmet and Maria Rushe, with a large number of families turning out to enjoy a Christmas classic movie for a great cause.

Now in its third year, #RusheToRaise 2019 brought The Grinch Movie back to the big screen for one day only. All proceeds from the event will be donated to two vital local funds – the Donegal Hospice and the Children’s Ward at Letterkenny University Hospital.

Maria Rushe revealed that €2,000 had already been raised this morning – and with more donations coming in, the total is set to be another great boost for both causes.

Mr Grinch himself headed to the movies to welcome guests young and old to Century Cinema – and cause a fair amount of mischief!

Despite his dislike of Christmas, cinemagoers kept the festive feeling strong by wearing their best Christmas jumpers, accessories and enjoying treats provided by Maria and Emmet.

The film day was another wonderful family occasion for children and adults, and is well on its way to becoming a yearly tradition for many.

Emmet and Maria would like to say a huge thank you to Century Letterkenny for all their support as always and also to Noel O Donnell and Co for sponsoring The Grinch.
