A WIDNES charity has been nominated for a top film award.

Child Bereavement UK, based on Ashley Way, has been named a finalist for the 2018 Charity Film Awards.

The charity, which supports children who have been bereaved and families in which children have died, has been recognised for its One More Minute.

In the short clip, those supported by the charity - as well is its celebrity patrons including Mary Berry and Rio Ferdinand - are asked what they would say if they have one more minute with their lost loved ones.

Mary Berry, whose son William died aged 19, said in the video: "I would thank him - I would thank him for being a brilliant son."

Members of the public are invited to cast their votes for the People’s Choice Award.

Charity chief executive Ann Chalmers added: "Child Bereavement UK is thrilled that our One More Minute film has been recognised by these prestigious awards.

"We are indebted to the bereaved children, young people and parents who so openly shared their experiences of the impact of bereavement on their lives.

"The film has helped the charity to reach many more families needing support - calls to our helpline increased by 78 per cent during the campaign.

"Please support Child Bereavement UK by taking one more minute to watch and vote for our film.

"Being a finalist is a wonderful way for us to raise awareness of the need for bereavement support.

"Winning the People's Choice Award would be particularly special, showing that we are making inroads into breaking the taboos that exist around death and bereavement."
