Now in its sixth year, 1 Million Minutes works with charities such as the Alzheimer’s Society and Grief Encounter and encourages people to volunteer their time with those who feel isolated over Christmas.
They kicked off their 2021 campaign with a brand new film, directed by James Bond actor Colin Salmon.
It shows an elderly man, named Bob, walking around his shed at the allotment, playing music all the time.
He is then seen pessimistic as he looks at children’s drawings, cuddly toys and family photos.
But in a turn of events, he is surprised by a group of children and adults decorating the exterior of the allotment for Christmas and were on hand with hugs and a cup of tea.
The ad ends with the message: “’A simple act of kindness can change someone’s life. “
Back at the studio, Robert was clearly moved when Susanna turned to him and said, “You’re broken. “

“You are amazing,” Susanna told viewers before adding, “Allowances are really important to people. “
Robert replied: “Being side by side more than ever and also how important it is to be side by side at Christmas. “
