As part of Canford School’s Gala Dinner and Silent Auction this year, LoveLove Films offered the prize of taking part on our award-winning New Talent Placement Scheme.
The auction raised £525 in support of The Martin Marriott Foundation for bursaries at Canford, with the event raising in excess of £10,000 towards the Charitable Annual Bursary Fund which will support a deserving Sixth Form pupil for their two years at Canford.
The theme for this years Gala Dinner and Silent Auction was ‘Murder on the Orient Express’. Guests were encouraged to dress in the style of the 1930s era for a very special evening which included a drinks reception, dinner in the Great Hall and the chance to meet distinguished guests including one of Britain’s most prolific actors, Michael Medwin OBE, Natalie Llewellyn, Head of Global Strategy at Platinum Films and Tom Williams, British screenwriter.
LoveLove Films’ MD Georgina Hurcombe says: “We are absolutely delighted that our prize raised £525 at the Silent Auction! At LoveLove, we think it’s incredibly important to support our local community!”
The Martin Marriott Foundation was launched in December 2016 to provide bursaries for deserving pupils. The Martin Marriott Foundation’s vision is to provide financial support to allow more young people from society as a whole to gain from the life changing experiences offered by a Canford education.
At LoveLove Films, we are very proud of our award-winning scheme and take on around 30 students a year; giving each student a chance to experience working within a vibrant, independent production company environment. The scheme caters to individuals from a variety of courses, from animation and graphic design to TV production and other production based courses, and even marketing and business courses.
