New film for Phoebe Crowson has support of Stamford and Bourne firms
A film being made with support of companies in the Stamford and Bourne areas will help raise funds for the Phoebe Research Fund.
'Assisted' is being shot in Stamford and is taglined as 'a heartbreaking story of a father and son's relationship around the subject of assisted dying'.
It also stars Steve Hudson, best known for the smash-hit film The Full Monty, and Steven Arnold from Coronation Street, who is also Zoe's partner.
Zoe Crowson set up the Phoebe Research Fund in 2015 to raise both funds and awareness of recessive dystrophic epidermolosis bullosa, a condition which affects her daughter, Phoebe.
Nine-year-old Phoebe attends Copthill School in Uffington and leads a full life, but the condition can cause her skin to blister badly and break away at the slightest touch. She also suffers internal blisters which can lead to problems with swallowing and choking.
Another film, 'Annual Review', will be filmed soon at finance company Pilot Fish Partnership's offices in Manning Road, Bourne.
Zoe and Steven decided to use Pilot Fish because business owner, Richard Jones had supported Phoebe Research Since it was founded in 2015.
"We have met so many incredible people through Phoebe Research that we have decided to bring actors here and use local talent," said Zoe.
These include Mercury photographer Lee Hellwing, and Rebecca Jones a Market Deeping-based make up artist.
"We want to involve other local businesses in future projects as a way of highlighting how much Stamford has to offer," added Zoe.
The film projects will benefit The Phoebe Research Fund, which will receive 25 per cent of profits.
