Vote for us in the Charity Film Awards!

LinkAge Network and Severnside Community Rail Partnership are very excited to be in the running for a national award for the video ‘Overcoming loneliness with Games on the Train’.

The project uses the train creatively to showcase activities for people over the age of 50 which take place along the route of the Severn Beach railway line in areas such as Sea Mills and Avonmouth on the outskirts of Bristol.

We’re really proud of this project, which is about getting people together, having fun, building friendships and using our fantastic local transport. Please lend your support by voting for us on the Charity Film website here:

This phase of voting will only be open until Sunday 1 December, so get in quick and help us make the shortlist!

The Charity Film Awards champions effective story-telling and digital engagement among not-for-profits in the UK. Since its launch in 2017 more than 1000 charity films have entered and over ¼ million members of the public have voted.

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

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 public vote 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.
