The Yorkhill Children's Foundation is raising funds for the UK’s second Medicinema, to be built in the Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow. The charity needs to raise 300,000GBP, and though they are have already raised a large proportion of the money, they need a bit more help to reach their goal.

Movies can provide distraction and help relieve boredom and stress, but children confined to hospitals do not have the option to go out to the theatre. Medicinema offers sick children and their families the opportunity to enjoy a free film in a state-of-the-art cinema setting with easy access for wheelchairs and beds. Medicinema is supported by Ewan McGregor and Kevin Spacey.
