Soul of the City Choir

Posted on 18th April 2019 by

We are delighted to be Soul of the City‘s charity partner for the year. It’s wonderful to be linking with such a dynamic, inclusive, like-minded organisation that brings people and communities together to enjoy singing, have fun and improve wellbeing. In our befriending and social prescribing work to connect people to reduce isolation and loneliness, we believe no one should be isolated or feel lonely in a city as active, vibrant and positive as ours.

Check out the choir’s awesome cover of ‘Shake it Out’ by Florence & The Machine:

Posted on 27th June 2014 by

Last week, University of Brighton students carried out some fundraising activities for Impetus. Their hard work generated a total of £1437.86! We think that’s an impressive figure for the short time they had, and all of us are feeling very grateful. Matt Day (manager of ASpire, Interact, and Better Futures) visited the uni today to personally give our thanks and collect the cash donations.
