Your support will help to raise money for a new film camera on our community film project.

Since 2012, teenagers living with illness have been making their own films (and winning awards along the way!) in collaboration with professional artists on the Two Suitcases Project. Our brand new film camera was stolen but with your help we can get a replacement for our autumn workshops.

With your help we can reach more teenagers coping with a life of living with illness.

‘Doing the project was really good because it made us feel normal, not sick kids having a little bit of fun. It felt like us teenagers are in control of what we want to come up with.’ – Teen participant
