St Peter's Hospice was built in 1997 to care for adults in Bristol at the most difficult times of their lives. However, despite the demand for space, the hospice can only run to 76% occupancy as many beds are in twin rooms. This generates many issues with mixed gender admissions, family interaction, privacy, staffing efficiency and access to external space. To keep pace with demand, the Hospice needed to raise awareness funding for 15 enlarged single rooms with enhanced care facilities.
St Peter's commissioned Skylark Media to make a video that would show the existing problem and then plans for the new building in animated 3D. This video is to be shown across social media, online and at fund raising events, such as charity balls.
How We Did It
Local celebrity and charity supporter, Caroline Quentin, volunteered to present the films. We filmed her interview in the garden room so that Caroline could spend the day meeting patients and staff at the hospice. But our filming day was just the start. We also spent a couple of weeks with a architectural 3D artist creating exciting fly-throughs and bringing the architects drawings to life.
St Peter's Hospice are delighted with the results that inspire both staff and supporters about the new building. The charity is well on its way to raising the £2.5 million needed to achieve 95% occupancy and the ability to provide local people with the very best palliative care to the highest professional standards.
