About the video
We help thousands of people in Croydon on a daily basis. Our film tells the story of a few of these people and how they can be linked together. The central theme is a tram stop where at any given time in Croydon, you could be sat next to, in a queue with, or walking down the street next to someone whose life has been touched by The Whitgift Foundation. The film aims to brings a sense of interconnectivity to Croydon.  “We’re here to help. More often than you think” is the line given at the end of the film, letting the people of Croydon know that The Whitgift Foundation, in one way or another, is there to help someone you know, or may not know.
