Have a great solstice holiday

Posted on 19th December 2008 by

I’m off the France tomorrow on the ferry to check out Charlie Turner’s chateau for a couple of days. This year has flown by but it feels like we have made a lot of progress. Thanks to paid and unpaid staff and all of our friends and partners for your support this year. I feel very privileged to work for Impetus and with such a dedicated group of people.

People’s Millions

Posted on 1st December 2008 by

Hi Everyone

I’m sure you all know by now that unfortunately we lost out on the People’s Millions funding.
