Earlier this year we were delighted to be approached by Matt Shepherd-Smith and his team at Merchant Cantos regarding an offer of producing a charity video for halow.
Jack and Sam from the team came to meet with the team here and we set about plans for the film crew to attend some of our activities and sessions and meet some of the amazing young people we support and their parents. We were overwhelmed with the support for this project from our young people and their parents and we are hugely appreciative of everyone’s time and effort to take part in the project.
George Hill, Co-Founder and Trustee for halow commented, “ We are enormously proud of the young people we support and were delighted with the offer from Merchant Cantos to create a video that told the story of the important work halow does through the eyes of the young people and families themselves.”
Ann Kenney, Director of halow said, “ The team from Merchant Cantos were a pleasure to work with, with compliments a plenty coming from the young people, staff and families involved in creating this video. We are all delighted to have worked with them and believe that this video will help us reach new families and young people in the new areas we are beginning to work with as well as explaining to commissioners and funders alike the vital support we provide at halow. We’d like to thank Matt and the team at Merchant Cantos for making this possible for everyone.”
The video shows our groups at work in various activities, at the Kitchen Garden at Birtley Nursing Home, on the River Wey with Surrey Outdoor Learning and out on an evening social trip in Woking. Hearing how important halow is to the young people we support has been a truly humbling experience and we certainly hope that our supporters will enjoy this video and continue to help spread the word and get involved in our much-needed fundraising events.
