A poet left a film director ‘shaking’ with emotion and excitement after penning a rhyme for his latest film.

Tring-based Loretta Livingstone was approached by videographer and photographer Daniel Herrick on Twitter to write a five-minute poem for his latest film Why Do We Do It?

The film explores the thrills and the triumphs that come with competing, as well as the inspirational underdog stories.

Loretta said: “It was a no brainer – of course I was going to do it!”

She’s also narrating the film, but it will be a while before we can enjoy Loretta’s poem as it’s still under wraps. Filming is set to start this week.
