A Summary of our project

We are the Gospel Choir Society (Brighton Sound of Zion) at The University of Brighton and we need to raise at least £250 to attend the national competition- The University Gospel Choir of the Year (UGCY). In this competition we will be competing against 7 other choirs from universities across the country. Our Gospel Choir will be travelling to Croydon on 6th April to take part in the UGCY 2019. After auditioning towards the end of 2018, we progressed onto the live finals for the second time ever and we are so excited to be back! 

our story

We are a group of 35 and are composed of students from both the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex. Being part of UGCY is such a special opportunity for our choir. As a group of young individuals and lovers of music, we grasp at such opportunities to express ourselves and our love for God through gospel. We are preparing extremely hard to show the country our abilities as a choir and we hope to do Brighton as a city proud! Being able to attend UGCY is a special thing for everyone in the choir and we would love if you could support us in this.

This society is part of Brighton Students' Union 

What will we use the money for?

If we hit our minimum target of £250, this funding would go towards travel cost to and from the venue in Croydon. Specifically, for our Brighton University students as Sussex University students are being funded by their respective University.

If we raise the full target, these funds will go towards refreshments on the day of the event. This including a drink on the coach and a bottle of water for each person, provided during the day. Finally, additional funds raised will go towards reimbursement of costumes being bought for our members, which are currently being paid for by our members themselves.

Breakdown of costs;

• Travel (coach hire & petrol): £550

• Food and Refreshments: £50

• Costumes: £200
