Notable work, highlights and achievements

 

Maddie Wall 28 Day Running Challenge for the NHS

During the 2020 coronavirus pandemic I worked with Lydia Lewis of PRorigins to help 13 year old Maddie Wall from Nottingham raise money for the NHS. Lydia had responded to a plea by Maddie's Dad on LinkedIn for help in promoting her challenge and asked for assistance in video editing. All work was done for free. 

 

Inspired by Captain Sir Thomas Moore, Maddie ran five miles a day for 28 days and via PR, social media and videos edited with footage taken by Maddie's Dad each day, we were able to help Maddie raise over £7000 for the NHS by getting her story on BBC East Midlands Today on two separate occasions, Notts TV and in the Daily Mirror. Maddie's story was even liked on Twitter by Captain Sir Tom himself.
