When we first came up with the idea of making ‘Daydream Believers’ we were always very clear that this would be a project that should benefit Barnsley.
It should benefit it by telling the story of its greatest achievement for future generations to look back on, by reminding people of some of the best days of their lives & by leaving a lasting legacy from any success it had.
That’s why we decided that should we be lucky enough to make any profits from the film that they would be donated to an incredible cause close to our hearts – the Tiny Hearts Appeal. The appeal was launched in 2014 with an aim to raise £1 million to help support the relocation and development of a brand new Neonatal Unit in Barnsley District General Hospital.
A little over two weeks after the official release of our film, we’re incredibly proud to announce we’ve today made our first donation of £10,000.
Director of Daydream Believers & Co-Founder of GRAFT, Chris Johnson, said ‘The support we’ve had for the film from too many people to mention has been incredible & to reach such a milestone so soon after release is a wonderful result. We’re thankful to everyone that has helped make this happen & look forward to making more contributions in future’
Producer & Co-Founder, Liam Dyson, said ‘Donating this at such an early stage is something I’m incredibly proud of. Creating a feature length production like Daydream Believers isn’t cheap & considering we’ve funded this without commercial or industry support is a real testament to everyone that’s been involved’
Our film remains on sale online, in the Barnsley Football Club Superstore and in Vinyl Underground on Regent Street. Digital downloads are also available and a limited amount of tickets for our Penistone Paramount show are still available, too. All profits will continue to benefit the incredible work of the Tiny Hearts Appeal & leave a legacy and asset that will benefit some of the most needy in our community.
