We could never have achieved any of this without the help of others. Friends, family, local organisations – people who through the kindness of their own hearts have helped us grow and achieve what we never thought possible. The following are just a few of many we would like to thank:
City Centre Ministries
Twice a week, City Centre Ministries’ food vans go out to serve the homeless community of Manchester. Not only have they been instrumental in encouraging people to come to the workshops, but they have provided additional support at the rehearsals and films, creating a safe environment for vulnerable people.
As a hub for the homeless community, Mustard Tree have encouraged people to attend the workshops and helped find authentic locations for filming. In the past they have provided us with space and facilities for our workshops.
Altrincham Baptist Church
They have offered mentors and advice to the team and been heavily involved in encouraging and fundraising.
We were delighted when they adopted Acting on Impulse as an ‘Associate Ministry’.
As the City’s main day centre for vulnerable people in Manchester, Cornerstone has been key to the research, education and locations for the filming of several of our films and hosting acting workshops for their clients.
Finite Productions Ltd
The production company that has taken Acting on Impulse to the next level. They have been very supportive and actively involved with our work since 2008.
