OBJECTIVES OF THE FRIENDS:

 

"Friends of ..." is now commonly associated with a wide variety of organisations, but when the Friends of Shropshire Music Trust was formed in 1990 it was something of a ground-breaking concept, particularly when allied to an organisation like the Trust. Even today it remains fairly rare. From its formation the particular objective of the Friends has been the support, maintenance and advancement of the charitable work of the Shropshire Music Trust. Friends provide administrative and financial support to the Trust. Administrative help includes management of ticket sales (either before or at concerts), pre-concert venue liaison, and carrying out front of house duties at concerts. Financial support is provided by a sizeable annual donation, the money for which is generated by Friends' annual subscriptions and donations and, on occasions, fund-raising events.

 

Friends' subscriptions and support make a major contribution to the Trust's activities and are vital for its continuing success. To maintain this support new Friends are always needed and welcome. Subscribers receive a variety of benefits and privileges:

 

 

   * advance details of all events

 

    * Priority bookings service

 

   * 3 newsletters a year

 

   * invitations to special events arranged to complement the main programme,

      such as introductory lectures to a concert or series

 

   * the opportunity to meet other Friends on social occasions

 

   * the opportunity to help at concerts

 

 

A minimum donation of £10 per person or £18 per couple is all that's required, but annual donations above these amounts are always gratefully received. If you pay Income Tax then any sum paid to the Friends can be treated as a Gift Aid donation, enabling the Friends to recover the basic rate of tax relative to the donation, thus increasing your donation by 25p for every £1 given. If you would like your donation to be applied in this way please complete the declaration on the Application Form.
