Wartime Wanderers Charity Scheme


An innovative way to invest in a feature film and benefit a charity

Wartime Wanderers is a film based on a true story of friendship, love, loyalty and survival. At the heart of the film is a beautiful spirit, which you can become involved in.

In response to an increasing demand from individuals wishing to back the film with small amounts, the production company has set up a Production Fund in aid of four charities. This offers the public a unique opportunity to donate any amount of money from as little as £5. Money raised through this route will first be used to produce the film and income from the film's release will be paid to the charities up to the full value of the fund. Thereafter all profits due to the fund will be paid to the respective charities, potentially supporting these good causes for many years to come.*

All donors receive a certificate of thanks and those donating £100 plus will receive a ticket to a premiere/gala screening and be given the opportunity to appear as an extra in the film.

Wartime Wanderers:
War against Germany is about to be declared. In front of a 23,000 strong crowd at Burnden Park, the Bolton Wanderers captain, Harry Goslin, gives a rousing speech before leading the entire team to the local Territorial Army drill hall where they all sign up. For the next six years, as gunners in the 53rd Field Regiment of the Bolton Artillery, they face some of the heaviest fighting of the Second World War. Back at home Nat Lofthouse gets his chance to play for the team he loves. But this is not just a story about war, or football. This is the story of a group of men and women whose loyalty led them into a bloody world conflict, and whose indomitable spirit enabled them to survive it. 

*The fund will be ring fenced, and will not be drawn down until the film is green lit. In the unlikely event the film does not proceed, all funds in the account, less the Paypal costs, will be donated to the charities. The full value of the fund will be represented as a percentage of the final budget for purposes of calculating any profit share.
