Join us for this very special one off screening of this film that documents the life of the legendary broadcaster and wild life activist. $5 of the ticket price will go to Ride Holidays Charity Te Awakairangi Trust whose primary goal is put bikes in schools and targeting kids that need them the most, providing an opportunity to learn how to ride a bike - something that you and I take for granted. They are also committed to not just handing over a bike and saying go for it. Recently the trust has set up a maintenance gang to regularly visit the schools they have supported (amongst others) to make sure all the bikes are working properly. “Still doing what he loves most, at age 78, this entertaining, enlightening documentary takes a surprisingly intimate look at the Englishman’s life, career and multiple passions” James Croot – Stuff.co.nz
