Working with Springboard Charity to help vulnerable people get into the hospitality industry
The Springboard Charity is an independent UK charity that supports vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals with barriers to employment to obtain the skills, confidence and experience needed to enter work, providing them with links to reputable employers in the hospitality, leisure and tourism industry.
This year, Springboard required a film to open its 30th Anniversary Pearl Ball, a piece that would bring to life the transformational experience of people who have trained with Springboard and the impact it has had on their lives. Although the ball was sadly cancelled due to the current situation, the video has been launched and the campaign remains ongoing to encourage donations and support for this worthy cause.
As DRPG’s charitable partner, it’s a project close to our hearts. We continue to support the charity and strive to help raise awareness and donations. DRPG’s video team has produced films for Springboard in the past and were keen to bring a fresh, new approach to this project.
Entitled ‘Unbreakable’ the film focuses on the stories of Simon, Roxy and Laura-Lily, using a combination of real-life film and hand drawn animation to explore and depict the struggles they faced before meeting Springboard. As per the title of the film, each person’s story triumphs with their success through the support of Springboard, celebrating their achievements and the life-changing opportunities the programme truly offers.
