Citizens Advice Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole is in the running for a national award in recognition of an inspiring film designed to recruit more supporters.

Supporters of Citizens Advice Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, have been urged to support the organisation and vote for the film at the Charity Film Awards website here: The Charity Film Awards champions effective story-telling and digital engagement among not-for-profits in the UK.

Since its launch in 2017 over 1000 charity films have entered and over ¼ million members of the public have voted. The awards have driven significantly increased video views, positive PR, social media engagement and donations for the participating charities. Last year’s winners include: Child Bereavement UK, NSPCC/Childline, RSPCA, Cats Protection and Breast Cancer Care.

More than 400 charities are taking part this year.

Simon Burton, founder of the Charity Film Awards, commented:

 “All the charities that have entered deserve to be congratulated, but they need more than thanks, they need votes!

“It’s simple for the public to vote for their favourite charity film at and many voters also go onto donate. Nearly 10% of those who voted last year also made a donation.”

The Awards are free to enter for charities. The current public vote phase will determine the final shortlist, which will then be judged by a panel of experts. The winners will be announced at a gala event at a prestigious venue in London in Spring 2020.
