THERE’S no need for foreign currency or a passport to take a trip around the globe.

You can travel the world without even leaving Portsmouth and all for a good cause.

I am presenting another one of the popular Armchair Traveller big screen charity video shows.

Film making is a favourite hobby of mine and I love to film and edit the adventures of me and my partner Jean Cornish in exotic, far-off countries.

This year we will be showing four films which I have scripted, shot and edited myself, covering our travels in Venice and the Greek islands, autumn in Andalucia, a look at life on New Zealand’s south island and a trip on some Tyrolean Trains.

The films are of a very high quality and can match travel documentaries seen on television.

The screenings take place in Portsmouth Guildhall, set up like a big screen cinema experience.

Last time we put this event on we had three sell-out shows, and this year we have already sold out one of the three dates, with remaining tickets going fast.

It’s really a chance to relive old memories for places you may have visited and also get ideas for your next holiday.

Everyone is welcome to come and share the experience.

All proceeds will go to Lord Mayor Councillor Lynne Stagg’s appeal and the Naomi House Children’s Hospice.

Last year we raised around £2,500 for local charities.

The screenings will take place at Guildhall, Portsmouth at 7.30pm on Thursday, October 10 and Wednesday, October 16.

Tickets cost £7 and include buffet and wine. Call (023) 9238 1634 to book.
