NPT Homes' Youth Committee create film
YOUNGSTERS in Neath Port Talbot have been capturing NPT Homes' community projects on film.
After producing a video to tackle the stereotypes of young people a few months ago, NPT Homes' youth committee has now filmed the organisation's community challenge.
The project allowed three different ventures within Neath, Port Talbot and Pontardawe to benefit from a day of free building or maintenance work with help from NPT Homes, their main contractors Mears, Mi-space and Jistcourt.
Materials were donated by a number of the organisation's regular suppliers.
Soon after the winners were announced, the youth committee began planning how to capture the project on film and started interviewing representatives from Tiddlywinks in Pontardawe, the 8th Crynant Scouts Hall in Neath and Eastern Primary School and Wesley Chapel in Port Talbot.
The committee, which is made up of eight 16 to 25-year olds captured the impact of the project with a series of interviews and before and after shots of work including new kitchens and bathrooms, flower beds and artwork.
Youth committee member Thomas Hanbury said: "When we heard about the community challenge project we thought it would be something really exciting to capture on film.''
The video premiered at NPT Homes' annual meeting at the Aberavon Beach Hotel in July.
