Charity Donations

One of the Society’s objectives is ‘to assist and further such charitable institutions or charitable purposes as the Society shall from time to time determine’.

We are extremely proud of our support of local and national good causes.

In fact, in the past two decades alone, the Society has generated over £26,000 in donations to individual appeals or from the profits of our concert tours.
