With over 400 UK-based charities entering this year, the 6th annual Charity Film Awards has announced its finalists and Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC) is one of them.

Almost 40,000 votes were cast by the public in the first round, which decided the charities that would make it through to the final. GWAAC says thank you so much to everyone who voted for Jasmine’s video.

How you can help your air ambulance charity win a Smiley Charity Film Award

Jasmine’s video, which is in a category based on GWAAC’s annual turnover, is placed against 15 other excellent causes working with a similar budget when they made their film.

Each category has two different awards up for grabs. One is to be decided by a panel of judges and the other is settled by you, the public. Both awards include bronze and silver prizes too.

GWAAC needs your help to win the People’s Choice Award. Even if you voted for Jasmine’s video the first time around, the count has reset, and everyone needs to register a new vote for their favourite film (hopefully Jasmine’s).

To watch, and vote for GWAAC’s film, please click here: Stay with us. It couldn’t be easier with only an email address needed to register your vote. Voting closes on Sunday 19 March.

Your vote will help GWAAC raise awareness of the lifesaving work it does in the region and it could open doors to more donations for the charity; donations that will ensure GWAAC can be there for people like Jasmine.
