Sunday the 16th December 2018 marked a triumphant end to a very busy year for Best Beginnigs as 130 loyal supporters, and some newcomers to the Best Beginnings family, gathered at the Everyman in Kingscross for an exclusive screening of Best Beginnings Ambassador and renowned film director and actor, Andy Serkis's latest film - Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, recently released by Netflix.

The Everyman's generosity not only ensured that our guests were treated to the special comforts of their unique cinema experience but that everyone was well fed and watered in a vibrant mix and mingle reception beforehand.

Longstanding celebrity ambassadors, Charlie Webster and Lorraine Ashbourne joined some of our newer supporters including presenter, Sean Fletcher. Any Serkis mixed with guests and engaged some of our very young audience members including Rebecca Lyons Collins, the nine year old daughter of Best Beginnings trustee, Clare Lyons Collins.

The film, with its all star cast including Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch and Andy Serkis himself,  was met with rapturous applause by a captivated audience and was followed by a delightful and enlightening Q and A with Andy Serkis.

Goodie bags, courtesy Bananagrams from Best Beginnings supporter, Rena Nathanson ensured were an added token of our appreciation for the generous support received throughout the year.

Bidding for a signed Mowgli poster by Andy Serkis has continued into the new year with hope or raising much needed funding towards the exciting new developments for Baby Buddy: giving greater recognition to the needs of fathers and answering calls from our Baby Buddy app parent users for our unique parenting support to  continue beyond the current six months post birth.
