Film of the week: CAP's 'raise money' video

Fundraising | 1 Feb 2013

Who said that charity films should be complex, slick or even conform to health and safety regulations? Erm....

There's nothing professional about the following film by Christians Against Poverty. But nonetheless it made us smile, and showcased a number of ways that anyone can get involved to raise funds this year, as well as showcasing some of the charity's achievements of 2012. It also highlighted the multi-tasking skills of Matt Small, who manages a steady run seemingly unperturbed by onslaught of flying objects heading his way.

CAP released their film this week as part of a rebrand of their charity including its website.



Every Friday features an innovative use of film by a charity. If you would like to draw our attention to your charity's film, or even someone else's please email
