MediCinema is a charity that looks to bring the joy and escapism of cinema to patients undergoing treatment for complex injuries and illnesses across the UK. They're launching a new fundraising drive called 'Pay it Forward', which asks cinema lovers to donate £10 (or whatever they can contribute) to help give patients a much needed break from treatment and hospital wards.

The charity install accessible cinemas that can accommodate wheelchairs and hospital beds within hospitals, screening the very latest releases to provide the immersive cinema-going experience for patients and their families.

MediCinema work closely with the NHS, but don't currently receive any state funding, relying solely on the support of the Film Industry and corporate and public fundraising.

The charity are supported by a long list of patrons including Simon Pegg, Helen Mirren and Ewan McGregor, and you can find more information on 'Pay it Forward', and the people it will help here:
