Hornchurch charity’s story will be turned into a short film

A Hornchurch charity will be able to tell its story after being chosen to have a film made by a top filmmaker.

WaveLength has been selected for the Media Trust’s Untold Stories scheme, which matches small charities with filmmakers who volunteer to create professional films to show the impact of the charity’s work.

WaveLength provides televisions and radios for isolated and lonely people, at no cost to the recipient.

Tim Leech, CEO of WaveLength, said: “Everyone at WaveLength is thrilled to have been selected for the Untold Stories project. As a charity that provides TVs to let people watch shows and films, we couldn’t be more excited to make our very own film.

“Working with a film-maker will be a great way to connect with our beneficiaries and donors all over the country.”
