The mission of the charity is to grant last wishes for adults who are suffering from life threatening or terminal illnesses. They are the only UK charity to grant wishes for those over 40 years of age.

The founders of Route Nine Studios, Teri Moran and Michael Jon Dawson, were so compelled to help the charity that they invested their time in creating a showcase.

The 10-minute film, called Curtain Fall, tells the story of a young mother who has a terminal illness whose wish is to see her little girl perform on stage just the once. She believes her daughter is destined to be an actor in the future.

The goal for the film is raise as much awareness as possible for the charity and enable more wishes for those who need them most.

Teri said: “We feel so privileged to help The HoneyRose Foundation in this way, Michael and I doing what we do best, whilst increasing the awareness of the charity. It’s been an absolute pleasure to make the film, and we can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
