I AM ANN STOKES and I was Neil's teacher

IamBreathing_global_240.pngThis is a series of posts by people who are going to host screenings of I AM BREATHING on MND/ALS Global Awareness Day.

I am Ann from Flockton near Huddersfield in England. I am hosting a screening of I AM BREATHING as a tribute to Neil Platt.


I had the privilege of teaching Neil at High School. He worked on the stage crew of the school productions and I got to know Neil and his family well through this. We became family friends and we were all delighted to attend his wedding to Louise.  

I promised myself that I would do what I could to continue his campaign to raise awareness of MND.

For the Global Screening Day of I AM BREATHING, I am hosting a screening in Huddersfield Town Hall on 21 June, organised through my WI group, Tea and Tarts.  We are going to fund-raise for MND on the evening by having a Platt’s Bar and some music after the film to raise a glass to Neil! Details and RSVP here.

Can you also host a screening on 21 June, wherever you are?
