Healthwatch Bury approached Bury College with a work experience opportunity after identifying the need for a promotional video to showcase the support they can offer to people in the community.
Creative Media student Xander Ross stepped up to the challenge and created a high quality, industry standard video that the company could utilise on their website and across their social media platforms.
Barbara Barlow, Healthwatch Bury Chairman, said,
“The video that Xander created was brilliant and is an honest representation of the work Healthwatch Bury is involved in. We were delighted to be in a position to offer a student a work experience opportunity.”
