Annie Lennox & Mary’s Meals

In 2012, our creative director had the chance to spend a week in Malawi with Annie Lennox, as she went to visit some of the projects supported by her foundation, SING.

 

Mary’s Meals are a large NGO providing daily porridge to thousands of children across Africa. This allows them to concentrate and draws them to school, helping create brighter futures.


Riding for the Disabled COVID Appeal

Charlotte, who could be considered severely disabled, had her life transformed by horse-riding and the therapy it provides. But Riding for the Disabled Association has now had to close all their riding centres. The future impact of COVID has more far-reaching implications that we could ever imagine.

We filmed Charlotte originally for a fundraising gala dinner, and decided to repurpose the edit for more wider and pressing appeal.

Remembering our filming experience with this sweet-natured girl and her un-bounding energy brings a smile to our faces.

Her mother, Helen Seth, said:

“I wanted to say a big thank you for the lovely video that you made of Charlotte for the RDA – it’s really lovely and captures Charlotte so well and really highlights her abilities. You were also really lovely with her during the filming process and we all enjoyed the day.”
