30 children were invited to a free screening of a popular film in a Glasgow cinema.

The youngsters, aged four to 10, watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem at Glasgow Fort.

Organised by the shopping centre, Vue and Young Movers (YoMo), who also treated the children to popcorn and a range of other goodies.

YoMo is a youth empowerment charity working across North East and North West Glasgow, delivering a range of youth-led projects focused on those who face social and economic barriers.

It currently has more than 150 volunteers working with 60 children and 80 young people weekly.

Glasgow Fort has supported the charity since May 2022, raising more than £2,000 to date towards the organisation’s work.

Linda McGlynn, project manager at YoMo, said: “Starting the weekend with a trip to Vue was a massive treat and we had lots of excited young people on the day.

“Like a lot of people across the country, many of the families we work with have struggled with the cost-of-living crisis and haven’t been able to maintain activities like a visit to the cinema.

"That’s why partnerships like this, with Glasgow Fort and Vue, are so vital to continue to provide enriching and fun experiences for our young people.”

Phil Goodman, centre director at Glasgow Fort, said: “Supporting our local community is extremely important to us.

"It was fantastic to welcome YoMo to the centre and work together with our partners at Vue to put on a fun day out for the young people and volunteers.”
