‘Down Town Babby’: a special Christmas film 

Save the Children, Wednesday 9th December 2015


Ella’s Kitchen launch ‘Down Town Babby’ Christmas film to celebrate special festive partnership with Save the Children.

Ella’s Kitchen has launched an exclusive Christmas film to celebrate its exciting partnership with Save the Children. Bringing smiles to families this festive season, ‘Down Town Babby’ is available to watch now.

The short film will help drive awareness of Ella’s Kitchen jingle belly Christmas Dinner pouch where 30p from each sale is donated to Save the Children’s award–winning Families and Schools Together programme (FAST).

FAST aims to build stronger bonds between parents, schools and communities in the UK to make sure children get the support they need to fulfil their potential at school and in life, as well promoting the importance of family meal time and the positive impact this can have on little ones’ development.

Taking place on Christmas day, ‘Down Town Babby’ sees the family face the prospect of no Christmas dinner thanks to a cold oven and forgetful characters. Cue much alarm and all hands on deck to rescue the day! Will they be able to enjoy Christmas turkey with all the trimmings or will they have to accept that this year, there just won’t be any Brussel sprouts?

Set in a grand, stately mansion, viewers will be treated to a troupe of little ones all dressed up in period costumes and playing a host of whimsical characters. From a busy family cook and her head-in-the-clouds assistant, to the haughty, formidable matriarch and a recently-returned relative back to save the day, the period film adds a little bit of magic to the festive season.

Mark Cuddigan, Head of Ella’s Kitchen, comments: “We’re really excited to have partnered with Save the Children and the launch of our special Christmas film. We think we’ve created something that will not only raise awareness of our charity partnership in a fun way, but also puts kids at the heart of the campaign. We hope mums and dads fall in love with it this Christmas.”

Tom Rahilly, ‎Director of UK Programmes at Save the Children, said: “We’re so grateful to Ella’s Kitchen for helping raise awareness and money for our vital work with children and families across the UK. We believe every child should have the chance to fulfil their potential, no matter where they are born, and we hope that through our partnership we will be able to reach more vulnerable children and help them succeed in life.”
