British Actress Sally Philips has been confirmed as the host of the Charity Film Awards. Taking place on 15 March at BAFTA (London), the Awards celebrate the use of video by charities, whether to change mindsets, fundraise or raise awareness.
36 charities have made it through to the finalist stage, including household names such as RSPCA, Barnardo’s, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Prostate Cancer UK, St John Ambulance and Alzheimer’s Society. The charities are categorised according to their turnover, with each hoping to be crowned with Charity Film of the Year.
The finalist charities have also been appealing to their supporters for votes to win the accolade of People’s Choice. Over 65,000 members of the public have taken part to choose their favourite charity film.
In addition to representatives from the charities, confirmed attendees for the Awards Ceremony include Niomi Smart, Joe Woodward, Lady Colin Campbell, Chelsee Healey, Lord Herman Ouseley, Kelsey Hardwick, James Sutton, Luke Friend, Chessie King, Stephanie Elswood, Baroness Parminter, Danielle Armstrong, Dr Dawn Harper, Svet Kolchagov and Emilio Barba and Jamelia.
