“ In response to some of the criticism about the showing of the film. The speaking segment had to be short because the Ritzy had a booking after our time slot had completed. The event continued past the exact time advertised (after 4pm) so it is not fair to say that we were not prepared as we gave extra time and had the Ritzy not had another booking we would have went on for longer! As for this being a money making exercise, the Ritzy were paid for accommodating the film and the charitable organisation made less than £150 to continue their work in prisons and detention centres (not a fortune but will help support the FREE work that we do to support people in the community)! The hosts made zero amounts of money and gave their time and resources for FREE. The booklets, flyers and handouts for more information for those in need were all provided at our expense. We have had very good feedback from the feedback forms that we received and have been asked to show hold this event again! ”
