Where is everybody? Not far away…at the pictures. A hundred and fifty people attended the showing of the award winning film ‘I, Daniel Blake’ at the Scala last Friday.
Kate Rutter the actress who plays a sympathetic Jobcentre worker in the film was at the screening to do a Question and Answer about the making of it afterwards.
The film kick starts a campaign of free advice in Ilkeston to help people through the complications of dealing with the Department of Work and Pensions. Residents of Ilkeston were told they could benefit financially thanks to the ‘MAX YOUR MONEY’ initiative being waged in partnership by the Derbyshire Unemployed Workers’ Centres (DUWCs), the Derbyshire Districts Citizens Advice Bureau and Direct Help and Advice.
