Wooden Spoon need your vote for Charity Film Awards

WOODEN Spoon is in the running for the Charity Film Awards, in recognition for an inspiring film designed to highlight child poverty in London.

The video, which includes pupils and staff at Kobi Nazrul School, shows how Wooden Spoon can make a difference to children’s lives who are facing disadvantage across the UK and Ireland.

The project shown in the film was an outdoor learning space, which included a double decker bus that had been transformed into a kitchen.

We would love for supporters of Wooden Spoon to vote for our film at the Charity Film Awards, and promote what we do into the wider community.

The Charity Film Awards champions effective story-telling and digital engagement among not-for-profits in the UK. Since its launch in 2017, over 1,000 charity films have entered and over 250,000 members of the public have voted.

The awards have driven video views, positive PR, social media engagement and donations for the participating charities, and more than 400 charities are taking part this year.

The current public vote phase will determine the final shortlist and voting closes on 1 December. The videos will then be judged by a panel of experts, with the winners being announced at a gala event at a prestigious venue in London in Spring 2020.
