Film Director Takes on 7.1 Mile Charity Challenge

Award winning film director Dean Midas, is walking from Willington Cricket Club to Durham Cathedral, 7.1 miles on Saturday December 9th, for Feeding Families, a charity based in North East England that offers support, hope and security to those experiencing food poverty.

35% of children in the North East are growing up in poverty. That's nine in a classroom of 30. Feeding Families works across the North East, helping those who can't access food banks. They offer support, hope and security to those experiencing food poverty. Working closely with other organisations and agencies, they ensure that thousands of families in desperate need have access to our Emergency Food Boxes and support packages. Feeding Families offers more than just food, it shows compassion to those in crisis.

Rachel Lister from Feeding Families said "We are extremely grateful for Dean's help and support, not only in this festive period, but all year around"

Mr Midas said: "Every single penny we raise during this walk, really will change people's lives. Thank you in advance for your support"

Dean also hopes people will join on his walk through the 'lines' at Brancepeth, Brandon, Langley Moor, Neville's Cross and through Durham city centre.

Dean Midas was recently awarded the North East Film Director of the year award and has received acclaim from around the world for his spooky films, that are all made on mobile phones.
