A firm has given a group of budding filmmakers a boost.
RS Components has donated £1,500 from its My Community fund to a film project run by Adrenaline Alley in Corby.
The charity is using the donation to help make a film, which will premiere at The Core in April.
The film project will involve about 50 people, with 20 being trained in various aspects of the media by film-maker Gary Halliday and his team.
The aim of the film is to highlight the story behind Adrenaline Alley (formerly Corby Wheels Project), which was founded by Corby mum Mandy Young after her son was attacked while out on his skateboard.
Mandy said: “Following what happened to John, I often find myself having to repeatedly tell our story, which can be very painful – hence my desire to commit the story to film. I wanted to be able to do John’s story justice as a broadcast quality film, so I am grateful for donations such as this one from RS, which helps towards the further £5,000 the project needs.”
The My Community fund was set up by RS to allow employees to support local causes.
