A charity film, funded by Springbourne Homes, is up for a top award at a glittering occasion in London’s Leicester Square this month. The ‘We Will Grow’ film by the Bumba Foundation is a finalist in this year’s Charity Film Awards being held at the famous Odeon Luxe cinema in the Capital.
The movie showcases the work of the Foundation, a UK charity which is a pioneering project to provide life-changing opportunities for African children and young people in one of the most deprived parts of Uganda.
Springbourne Homes chairman Adrian Burr is thrilled by the news and said: “I’m delighted to hear that the film has been so well received and is in line for such a prestigious prize at the awards. The Bumba Foundation does amazing work and I’ve been so impressed with the people who run it that it’s very satisfying to see them receiving some deserved recognition.
Everyone at Springbourne Homes is backing them all the way and we’ll definitely be voting for them and hoping they win the big prize. “We’re so glad we’ve sponsored the “We Will Grow” film and the Bumba Foundation is something we will continue to support as it continues to grow and develop.”
The Foundation provides sustainable education opportunities for children, young people and communities in the East African nation. The charity has already successfully raised the funds to build and run two community primary schools and two vocational skills centres in the impoverished Budaka District in Eastern Uganda, helping and supporting around 1,500 young people and community members each year.
Bumba Foundation founder Martin Tilbury has thanked Springbourne for their support and is now urging everyone to vote to help ensure ‘We will Grow’ takes top prize. He said: “ Thank you to everyone for getting us to the final of the Charity Film Awards. Now we need you to vote again and help us win the people’s prize.
Voting only takes a minute and we now need as many votes as possible to win the award which will provide us with more funding opportunities and increased exposure for our small charity, which will be fantastic in our 10th anniversary year.”
