At Entyce Creative we’ve been supporting Hope House as our charity of the year. Our support has taken many different forms from baking and eating cake to taking on physical challenges such as the Chester half marathon.
We love fundraising for them but were looking for different ways to help the charity. We wanted to do something that would support their fundraising efforts and help them with something they might not be able to do in-house. We came up with an idea to support the charity using our digital marketing skills and expertise. Video is a great way to promote events online so we sent our videographer out to film on location at one of their fundraising events.
The Gung-Ho challenge in aid of Hope House and Ty Gobaith took place this June at Chester Racecourse. Last year some of the Entyce team were there taking part but this year we were there to film the 5KM obstacle course. Our videographer Tom shot footage of the actual course as well as interviewing participants to put together a video which showcased exactly what is involved and how much fun the participants had while raising money for this fantastic charity.
The final edit is looking amazing and we’re thrilled to have been able to donate it to Hope House to help them raise awareness and promote the event next year. We hope the fundraising team will be able to use the footage to encourage more and more people to get involved.
Nicola Sciarillo, Area Fundraiser saw the video for the first time recently and was really pleased with the footage. She got in touch and said, “Back in this morning and the first thing I did was watch this amazing video. I was nearly crying – I just love it. We could never have captured the real essence of the day like Entyce has. This really is very special indeed. Thank you so very much!”
164 people took part in this year’s Gung Ho event and hopefully the video will attract others to get involved in this and other events for the charity.
