We are soon to release our DVD documentary on Canvey Island and we gave Janet Penn a copy to write a review! Janet kindly wrote an article on the Canvey Island Archivewebsite. In the article she said:
Well done boys, do I see a TV careers in the offing?
Janet may very well be right! On May 18th I submitted a video on Organ Donation as part of an NHS competition to promote the National Organ Donation Week. The shortlist was announced at the start of the week and I am proud to say that the video is in it!!! In the 2 minute documentary we tried to get the message across that you should consider organ donation today and sign up and tell your family. Our friend, Luke Whitlam, is an dying boy who is desperate for an organ donation and he’s only wish is to go to school. At the same time, myself, is dreaming of becoming a proffessional athlete as I admire football. (A lot of acting required!!). Whilst playing football my ball goes into the road, where I run after it and get hit by a car. As I was signed up on the organ donation register Luke was able to recieve the gift of my organs and go to school; his dream come true. Luke said:
Organ donation is very important because you just have to sign up and signing up saves lives. I think our video showed that and got the point across.
We are very proud of our success and achievement towards this video. You can watch out video below and please watch as the winner is partly chosen by the number of views the video gets!! The judges will decide on a winner and the results will be announced publicly on 4th July in which Luke and myself and invited to the Official Awards Ceremony!!
