The Barwon Regional Elder Abuse Awareness Network will also hold a free movie afternoon for the more senior members of our community on Monday the 15th of June 2015 at the Geelong West Town Hall from 1.30pm until 4.00pm. The movie that will be shown is ‘The 100 foot Journey’.

Hassan Kaam (Manish Dayal) is an extraordinarily talented and largely self-taught culinary novice. When he and his family are displaced from their native India and settle in a quaint French village, they decide to open an Indian eatery. However, Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the proprietor of a more acclaimed restaurant just 100 feet away, strongly objects. War erupts between the two establishments, until Mallory recognizes Kadam’s impressive epicurean gifts and takes him under her wing.

Gift bags, popcorn and afternoon tea will be provided.
For more information, please call Lisa Bistak on 5272 4019 or Jillian Chapman on 5221 4744.
