Tony Mattravers Filming

Tony Mattravers Filming

31st August, bank holiday, our baby’s due date. It’s not here yet so it looks like our second child will be one of the oldest in their year group, rather than being the youngest. This also means things are on tenterhooks in the Mattravers household, so it was a welcome relief to wake to an email from a former client, now a very good friend, John Stephens from Visual Business Group, http://www.thevisualbusinessgroup.co.uk/

John is a superb Digital Visualologist based in Somerset who had offered to create a short video to help my push to reach £5000 for Cruse Bereavement Care Somerset. I enjoyed filming this with him last Thursday.

The stunning results are here https://vimeo.com/137900735

What makes the video extra special and with REAL meaning is the interview with Norman. He talks about the support Cruse Bereavement Care Somerset provided to him after his wife had died and how you never hear about the good people in life, only the bad people and the emptiness he felt after her passing.

This brought a tear to my eye seeing in his eyes how much support Cruse provide to individuals in their moment of need and the difference this makes to their lives.

Sponsorship is at £3941, desperate to raise a further £59 to break the £4000 mark.

Please take the time to share this video link and help me to help Cruse to reach out to more people like Norman in their hour of need.
