A couple of weeks ago, we told you about the latest StreetSmart video, produced by Spectrecom on behalf of the brilliant charity of the very same name. Well, that video achieved its own little bit of stardom on Monday, with a fleeting appearance on Have I Got a Bit More News for You.
Richard Bacon is the star of the StreetSmart video, playing the Ebenezer Scrooge figure in a celebrity chef-studded version of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
And with Richard one of the panellists on this week’s edition of epically long-running BBC comedy show Have I Got News for You, it was the perfect opportunity to showcase the first 20 seconds of the video.
That meant a brief prime-time TV appearance for our very own Kieran Hodges as the newspaper seller, but more importantly it meant an excellent showcase for the fantastic cause that is StreetSmart.
Running in top restaurants every November and December, with the aim of raising money for the homeless, you can find out more on StreetSmart’s own website.
And you can see this year’s video in full below.
The video production prowess of Spectrecom has been called upon by charities far and wide across these Great isles of ours; Children in Need, Macmillan Cancer Support, and the National Trust to name just a few. Take a look at our charities page to find out more.
