The SmileForJoel Celebrity Charity Football Match

We had the absolute pleasure of taking part in filming and photographing the celebrity charity football match for SmileForJoel and Compton Hospice on Saturday, 13th May. 

We were approached by Suzy Evans, founder of the SmileForJoel charity to help produce a highlights video, as well as a selection of images of the event. We previously produced a video for Suzy and the charity, which was also displayed at the beginning of the match.

You can watch that video here:

The SmileForJoel charity helps victims of homicide and terrorism, and have had several successful events, including the Run For Joel marathon, which took place in September 2016. 

We arrived on the day to a sea of people all queuing and awaiting the arrival of many celebrities, including Shayne Ward from X Factor and Katie Price, who were the managers of each team, the Smiling Saddlers (Price) and The Compton Wolves (Ward)

Celebrities from British television, such as Jake Wood (Eastenders), Calum Best from (Big Brother), Dan Osborne (The Only Way is Essex) and many, many more. 

The match ended in a 6-5 score, with the Smiling Saddlers taking home the trophy for the win.

We’re now editing the video and images, and should be released in the near future. 

It was an incredible day, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. From meeting the celebrities to being a part of such a large event, to remember the lives of the Tunisia attack victims, Joel, Ade and Pat. There was a great deal of emotion on the day and we feel grateful to have been a part of it
