YOU don't need to run a marathon, shave your head or climb dangerous mountains to raise money for charity.
All you need to do is purchase a ticket to the opening night of the action-packed movie, Thor: The Dark World, at Event Cinemas Castle Hill on Thursday, October 31, at 7pm.
The movie night is being held to raise funds to put on the Christmas in the Hills event, Carols by Candlelight Festival and Christmas Markets at Bella Vista Farm.
The second instalment of the Christmas in the Hills event will be held on Wednesday, December 18, at 3pm and will include a night of carols, fireworks, local entertainment and markets.
Radio presenter and Christmas in the Hills chairman Gareth McCray said the movie night will be a fun night for all who attend.
"Nash Patel of the Good Guys has donated a home theatre system which someone could win," McCray said.
"There is a good movie to watch and a great raffle going."
McCray said it was important to raise money to help three important charities in The Hills Shire.
"It's the nature of the Aussie way of life to help people in need," he said. "These charities rely on 90 to 100 per cent of donations. It's always good for the community to be out and helping."
Tickets cost $30 each which includes entry into the movie and into the Home Theatre System Competition from Nash Patel of The Good Guys, and popcorn and a drink. Bookings are essential.
