A multi-skilled team of Showforce’s experienced and capable crew were on-hand this October to assist Bizibot Productions with the preparations and successful delivery of Cancer Research’s charity event Stand Up to Cancer. Held at Central Hall Westminster on Friday 17th October and broadcast on Channel 4, the fundraising spectacular saw a host of stars from television, music and film come together to raise money for this fantastic cause.
The Showforce team totalling 147 crew members in total were onsite from 7th – 18th October, carrying out a variety of tasks and duties. These included loading in equipment and ensuring that the correct equipment was dispatched and transported to correct part of the venue. In addition the crew also assisted the lighting and sound engineers with the installing and testing of their equipment. Further members of the team built scaffolding for the additional upper tier of seating that was installed for the event.
The programme was presented by Davina McCall, Alan Carr and Dr. Christian Jessen and to date more than £14.5 million has been raised.
