St. John's appeal with 'Avengers: Endgame' release

Isaac Gunson

Alpha Phi Omega is hosting a St John's appeal with the release of this month's 'Avengers: Endgame'.

Joven Pablo, treasurer of Alpha Phi Omega's South Island association, is looking forward to supporting St John's.

"Saving lives is important. If someone dies, you won't be able to get them back" says Pablo, hoping to draw attention to the importance of St. John's work.

The appeal follows a Christchurch paramedic pleading for full government funding late last month, instead of leaving the emergency service to rely on community funding.

Joven says the association picked 'Avengers: Endgame' because Avengers films appeal to such a wide audience.

Alpha Phi Omega has booked 148 seats at the Hoyts cinema in Northlands Shopping Mall

The film will screen on Saturday April 27 at 6pm, three days after its general release, with tickets costing $20 each.

If you would like a ticket to this event, you can get in touch with a member of the association, or reach out to their Facebook page here.
