“Ralph” a short film currently under production, is raising money — for a donation of £100, the producers will name a character after you. You won’t get that offer from “Downton Abbey.”
Ralph was a miner who enlisted in 1914, when he was not quite 15.
Here’s the Facebook description of the project:
Ralph is a Docu-drama World War One short film based on the true story of Ralph Howells, with an astounding account from the trenches. Check out the ways you can help in our latest posts!
With your support we aim to not just make this a final year film, but a contender for festivals across the country, to bring awareness to what life in the trenches was really like and how it affected the communities the soldiers left behind.
