After months of hard work, weeks of planning, and too many meetings to count, the event finally arrived.
If I was in a fairytale the line “Cinderella you shall go to the ball” seems appropriate. But I’m not in a fairytale as much as it saddens me to admit, it doesn’t, however, discredit the fact that the night was just as wonderful, with a fantastic atmosphere enjoyed by all who attended.
I ask the question again, How do people not know about JRCF?
How is it that a charity which is supporting some of the most vulnerable young people within York isn’t widely known about?
I feel like standing and screaming about it to the people of York, and I would, but I’d probably be arrested for disturbing the peace or something like that. But the point remains, people need to know about JRCF, but that’s the purpose of the film really, getting the word out to those that don’t know about it.
I am incredibly lucky working with Inspired Youth, Kev and CJ work and meet some of the most amazing people, and with those people come heartfelt and inspiring stories.
We all have a story to tell, some of us just have more to tell, Some of the stories could have more twist and turns than even the bestselling author could ever dream about let alone write about, but these stories, these people we meet, they’re real.
These stories they tell are their life experiences, and granted some aren’t overly positive, but these people when you listen to what they have to say are absolutely amazing.
I had never heard about the Jack Raine Community Foundation up until the project with them was revealed, and after going there and meeting the staff, and those the charity helps, I felt awful. How is it that something so amazing and beneficial to the Young people in York is barely known about?
