Making Memories… Giving Hope

An evening with Jenny Agutter


We were absolutely delighted when our patron Jenny Agutter joined us on Saturday for a screening of her film, The Eagle has Landed, at RAF St Mawgan. 

The Eagle has Landed turns 40 this year, and also stars Michael Caine, Donald Sutherland and Robert Duvall. Many scenes were shot in Cornwall, in Charlestown, Rock and at RAF St Mawgan itself. 

After the film, Jenny answered questions from the audience about the film and her other work since. Guests then proceeded to the T.E.Lawrence Mess for a buffet dinner, where they mingled with Jenny, giving everyone the opportunity to ask any more burning questions!

The event raised over £2,500 which is enough to fund a CHICKS break for three disadvantaged children. 

Thank you to Jenny Agutter for joining us, and to RAF St Mawgan, who have been a huge supporter of CHICKS during the past year. The base has held a number of fundraising events and hosted our annual Christmas present wrap in December, when over 250 people joined forces to wrap the 2,400 presents we sent out to the children who came on a break during 2015.
