Multiple sclerosis victim Coral Bolton would have turned 80 next month.
To commemorate the event and her death in 2011 her family has organised a fund-raising premiere screening of the new release movie Beauty and the Beast at the Odeon 5 Cinema Orange from 6pm on Thursday.
Mrs Bolton’s daughter Samantha said she had sold about half of the 250 tickets for the screening with all proceeds going to MS Research Australia.
“This cause is close to my heart with my mother, Coral, suffering from this disease for over 40 years before passing away 5 years ago,” she said.
“Mum would have turned 80 next month. This event is in her memory.”
She said the movie was ideal for the fund-raiser.
“Mum would have loved it,” she said.

MS Research Australia said it affected more than 23,000 people in Australia – and women are three times more likely to have it than men.
