New videos from Rainy Day Trust

Published:  27 November, 2014

The Rainy Day Trust, the home improvement industry charity, has launched two videos aimed at increasing awareness of the Trust and its work.

One video explains how the Trust helps people who have worked in the home improvement industry and who now need a helping hand; the other is aimed at companies and individuals in the industry, outlining the many ways in which they can help.

The videos run for two minutes each, and use stop motion animation to explain how the Trust operates. They were produced by Rob Weiss at Weiss Marketing and donated to the Rainy Day Trust, and are intended to be screened wherever there is a relevant audience, such as at trade shows, conferences, trade association meetings, social functions, and industry sports events.

“We’re really pleased with the new videos,” said Rainy Day Trust’s general secretary, Diane Stevens. “They tell the Trust’s story in a clear and entertaining way, and they get the message across in just a minute or two. We’re always looking for ways to locate people who need our help, and we’re always looking for people who are willing to help the Trust – so we hope the new videos will deliver on both counts.

“And for our partners and benefactors, adding one or both of the videos to their own websites is a great way to publicise the fact that they are supporting the industry charity, as well as helping to spread the word even more.”
