Story

In the run up to our first screening of "Urban and the Shed Crew" directed by Candida Brady. We'd like to offer our support to Action for Children to hopefully help children like Urban and others, who are struggling to make a good life for themselves. With the inspirational work that people like Bernard Hare have given over the years, the love and care that has grown from his and others indomitable passion for young people in dire straits, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Also to Candy and Titus (Ogilvy) who worked so hard and against all odds have manage to keep the film alive.
Now, we can all help in our own way too. There will be some profits from the film given to Action for Children, which Candida will tell you all about.
 Sir Tony Hawkhead, chief executive at Action for Children, said: “Urban and the Shed Crew provides an incredibly powerful and gritty social commentary on the true reality of Bernard Hare’s experiences and that of a group of children in Leeds growing up through the nineties. Although the film is set over twenty years ago, its core theme of neglect and the desperate need for early action to avoid families spiralling into crisis is just as important today.

 “Action for Children has been working across Yorkshire for well over two decades and in our children’s centres and programmes supporting young peoplewe see examples of chaotic lives like these on a daily basisThe good news is that because our frontline work, we also see the truth in the film’s central message of hope, ‘It only takes on person to care’.
