Soul of the City Choir is proud to donate the profits from our gigs to local charities. Choir members have the opportunity to nominate charities that mean something to them to receive the proceeds from our gigs. This term, the Brighton choir is delighted to be supporting Hft, a charity for people with learning difficulties.
Hft is a national charity, providing services for people with learning disabilities throughout England. They support people to live the best lives possible – whether by providing support for just a couple of hours a week, or 24 hours a day.
Hft Sussex works hard to find creative ways to help combat isolation and enable people to enjoy new experiences and activities. Last year, Htf Sussex created CoreFest; a unique fully-accessible music festival for the whole community. CoreFest is set in the beautiful orchards at Hft Sussex, and is fully equipped to cater to the various needs of people with disabilities; from wheelchair-accessible pathways, to adult changing stations, to chill-out sensory areas, to staff with a sound understanding of the challenges people may face. Corefest 2017 is set to be even bigger and better that last year’s debut!
Music is close to all our hearts here at SOTC, and we all know that live gigs can be exciting, exhilarating and a fantastic social experience. So we are thrilled that we are able to help support Hft through our Spring Concert on 9 April 2017 to make CoreFest 2017 an event to remember, accessible to all.
