As filmmakers, we feel we have a duty to put our talents to good use; that our films should carry a legacy. Alongside making the documentary, Fixing Dad grew to become a patron of The Public Health Collaboration in the UK (PHCUK.org), a clear sign of our ongoing devotion to better public health. We also took a 50 page report to 10 Downing Street, and met with various MPs and the Mayor’s office to deliver our findings. We are currently building a film collaboration encouraging filmmakers to volunteer a small proportion of their filmmaking time and skills to promote social good through film.
‘Fixing Dad spoke to a group of staff from our London Underground team. Their story echoed with us, and the positive message that you can ‘fix yourself’ by making changes to your diet, activity and having the right mental attitude was inspirational. We realise that diet, lifestyle and nutrition impact on our workforce, at work and at home. If we can improve the long term health outcomes of our people, they will perform better for longer and enjoy happier, more productive lives. Thank you.’
