Give Them Wings Trailer and Sean Cronin interview

A sneak peep at the film on Paul Hodgson's life, and an interview with director Sean Cronin

The club has agreed to help publicise "Give Them Wings", the film about Paul Hodgson's life, and so Paul has sent us a trailer for the film, which promises to be superb.

Here's the ‘first look’ trailer for the biopic ‘Give Them Wings’, the incredible story of severely disabled Quakers fan Paul Hodgson.

Paul was diagnosed with acute Meningococcal meningitis at 10 months old and was not expected to survive past 5 years old, his parents were told that he would never speak.

Paul is now 55 years old and an award winning writer and producer and is happily married to the wonderful Jennifer Hodgson.

‘Give Them Wings’ is the story of how one man fought back… and won. The greatest act one human can do for another is.. Give Them Wings.

Paul says: "A huge thank you to  our wonderful cast and crew and to our investors without which telling this hugely important tale would not have been possible! THANK YOU!!"

Take a look at it here.
