We are absolutely delighted to receive a donation of £875 from the makers of Guard, a Belfast boxing film starring Bronagh Taggart from acclaimed TV series The Fall.
The film is set to be made by an award-winning team, including BAFTA winner Michael Lennox (Boogaloo & Graham), and multiple Emmy winner Robert Sterne (Game of Thrones). Thanks to a successful crowd-funding campaign earlier this year, the film will now go ahead. And, as part of that campaign, the team making Guard have donated a share of the funds raised to Women’s Aid.
From all of us at Women’s Aid, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the Guard team and to everyone who chipped in to the crowd-funding campaign.
If you know anyone who might back a Northern Irish, female-led boxing film with an Oscar-nominee behind the camera, and which is also raising funds for Women’s Aid NI, the Guard team would love to hear from you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more…
