THE final push to fund safety improvements on a Huntingdon road will be taking place later this month with a special preview of a family film.
The charity screening of Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (Cert PG) is taking place at Cineworld in Huntingdon on Saturday, June 27, starting at 3.30pm.
The special, advance screening - to be shown in 3D - will take place before the film's general UK release in July with proceeds going towards the A141 footpath campaign.
The cash will help cover the �67,000 cost of building a footpath from the A141, along Kings Ripton Road to Jubilee Park. Work on the path has started as part of a �400,000 light-controlled crossing scheme at the Kings Ripton/A141 junction where 16-year-old Warren Hay was fatally hit by a car in May 2007.
An additional �7,000 is needed to pay for the work. It is hoped the Cineworld screening will make a serious dent in the outstanding sum.
Warren's mum, Maxine Hay told The Hunts Post: "I'm really happy Cineworld have chosen to support this project it means a lot when large companies recognise the importance of issues affecting their community. I love the Ice Age films and fingers crossed it will be a sell out."
