An animated film produced by Royal Trinity Hospice for its 125th anniversary won a Charity Film Award at their awards ceremony at BAFTA yesterday evening. Trinity won the award in the turnover of £5million to £50million category after a public vote, followed by a decision from a panel of expert judges. 

The video was produced to help challenge some of the common misconceptions of hospices as well as raise awareness of the range of support on offer.

The 4 minute film, produced by Creative Connections, follows the story of one man with lung disease and how Trinity helps him and his family make the most of the time they have together. The video uses colourful animated images accompanied by a voiceover to show the range of care available at the hospice and at home.

Dallas Pounds, Chief Executive of Royal Trinity Hospice, said “We are so proud to have won this Charity Film Award. We wanted to show people that hospices are full of life and we have been delighted by the way our film has been received. It has been a pleasure to work with Creative Connections on this project and we are really grateful to everybody who voted for or shared our film on social media.”

The Charity Film Awards have been created to celebrate the success of film in fundraising, to increase exposure of charity films and to encourage donations for good causes.
