Splish Splash Splosh campaign

The Festivals Company has worked with the Noah’s Ark Appeal (the official charity for the Children’s Hospital for Wales) to help them raise £500,000 to fund a hydrotherapy pool at the Children's Hospital for Wales through its Splish Splash Splosh campaign.

In the video David Roberts (eleven-time Paralympic champion) explains the importance of hydrotherapy and how it helped him achieve his success, and how 500 children a year across Wales miss out on this treatment. The promo also features a family from South Wales who’s youngest son Hari suffered from hyper-mobility in his joints meaning he couldn’t crawl or walk. Through hydrotherapy treatment, Hari was able to walk for first time.

To provide music for the video, The Festivals Comapny approached the renowned Manchester band The Durutti Column who kindly allowed us to use their track Requiem Again (which featured in the film Jerry Maguire) taken from the remastered version of Vini Reilly in support of the Children's Hospital of Wales.
