AN INSPIRING short film about Windsor’s Thames Hospice has been made by a team that has also worked on Bond and Star Wars epics.
It is called A Short Film About Us and has been made by the top notch media production company Special Treats – whose staff offered their services free.
It was all arranged through hospice ambassador Jason Bevan – publicity director for Warner Brothers – and the son of the late Paul Bevan.
The Paul Bevan Foundation, founded in his memory, is the charity which teamed up with Thames Hospice, in Hatch Lane, a decade ago to care for people with life limiting illnesses.
The film crew spent a week at the hospice in Hatch Lane last summer, following its day to day running and interviewing patients.
Colin Burrows, managing director at Special Treats, said: “Like many people, I thought hospices were only about end-of-life care.
“But working on this project has completely changed my perception.”
Debbie Raven, chief executive at Thames Hospice, said: “I hope this film helps to dispel some of the myths around hospice care. Our patients and their loved ones are referred to us when their condition becomes life-limiting, for pain and symptom control and respite care, as well as emotional support and complementary therapy.”
