The Brighton SummitPosted on 15th October 2018 by Seb Feast
Over 350 Brighton businesses, charities and larger organisations came together on Friday 12 October for the Brighton Summit – Look Up. Jo Crease, Impetus Chief Executive, attended the event.
Attendees went along for a fully-immersive learning and networking day. Jo left with ideas, contacts and strategies for growing Impetus’ work in Brighton and Hove.
“It was a very inspiring day with thought-provoking speaker sessions, expert workshops and plenty of networking.”
Supporting and Fundraising UpdatePosted on 4th October 2018 by Karen Hunter
Over the last couple of months I’ve met and been inspired by supporters championing Brighton & Hove Impetus in innovative ways to raise awareness and funds.
Some of our supporters are keen to develop easy and fun ways to fundraise; such as bake-offs, cake sales, coffee mornings, clothes swaps, quiz nights, dining evenings, hosting film viewings and ‘Strictly’ gatherings. Even organising birthday celebrations asking friends to make a donation instead of presents. All these ideas are brilliant and we do have a Supporter Ideas help sheet which is available to download here.
