Amphigean’s relationship with the Bendrigg Trust began a number of years ago. The Trust is an activity centre specialising in high-quality adventure trips for disabled and disadvantaged people, of any age or ability.
The charity relies on donations and grants, along with many volunteers, to bring opportunities to those who would otherwise struggle to experience activities that many of us take for granted.
We are proud to support the charity and have in the past taken the whole Amphigean team to the Bendrigg site to provide some hands-on support.
We’ve spent a day in the blazing sun, restoring and maintaining a sensory garden where Bendrigg participants can move freely and safely and experience the exciting world of the outdoors – smells, textures and the beauty of nature.
We’ve spent a day in downpours giving the Bendrigg site a spring clean ready for an open day designed to encourage new participants and fundraisers.
In the current COVID-19 climate it has been difficult to provide physical support, but the Amphigean team worked hard to support Bendrigg by helping to create an animated video to share the great work they do and the benefit that participants receive.
The video now forms a critical part of fundraising and other campaigns, and we’ve already started work on the next instalment.
It has been an exciting collaborative project, with Bendrigg drafting the script and Amphigean editing it, designing the storyboard, recording the voice, and then building and publishing the video.
“…what an incredible job you guys have done with this. We all think it’s fantastic and it is really going to help us demonstrate the impact of our work and why it’s so important, which in turn will no doubt help us to secure funding and bookings in the future. We’re extremely grateful for all your hard work”Martha Wood, Fundraising & Marketing Officer at Bendrigg.
“This is our third year of supporting Bendrigg Trust. We continue to be impressed by the sheer dedication of staff, volunteers and supporters of Bendrigg and this shines through when you see the huge positive impact they have on anyone who attends their programmes.”Pete Simpson, Amphigean Managing Director
