The production, which has raised thousands of pounds for Home-Start Herts, has been shortlisted in the documentaries category of the Charity Film Awards.

The six minute video, which has had almost 13,000 views to date, was devised by local networking group St Albans Businesses.

Sue Wybrow, who heads up the group, said: “We are absolutely delighted at the response we received and continue to receive from the video - it was amazing fun to put together and a fantastic collaboration of local businesses - it would be amazing if we won the award!”

Suzy Moody, strategic manager for Home-Start Herts, added: “This video just keeps on giving! It continues to help to raise the profile of Home-Start and we used it at our group launch in October to show what can be achieved when people and businesses come together.”
