This week, we had the great pleasure of supporting spinal cord injury charity Back Up at their flagship fundraising event, City Dinner.
We were asked by one of the trust’s patrons, Eric Lanlard, to produce the beneficiary speaker film for the event and to capture all the action on the night too. We have known and worked with Eric for several years in his capacity as one of P&O Cruises’ Food Heroes, and were more than happy to get involved.
The City Dinner raises funds for vital services which enables the charity to support people affected by spinal cord injury. Ahead of the evening we filmed with Dom, a former marine, who sustained a high level spinal cord injury in a training accident in Norway which left him with no sensation in his hands or legs. Back Up’s support has helped Dom to rebuild his confidence and independence.
The evening was a huge success, raising a record-breaking £165,000. You can find out more about the charity’s work here, and hear Dom’s story in his own words below:
