• Fundraising and Donations •


The Friends of the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra need to raise £25,000 every year to continue to support our young musicians. We gratefully acknowledge the support of parents, friends, charitable trusts and other corporate sponsors.

Our very existence relies upon both financial support and the support of our many volunteer helpers. There are so many ways to support the Friends!

If you can assist with your time, please sign-up to one of our VolunteerSpot events or come to one of our meetings of The Friends.

Donations can be made via MyDonate, or directly to the charity’s bank account: Sort Code: 55-81-26 Account Number: 00357634. We ask all donors who are UK tax payers to sign-up to Gift Aid

Anyone who shops on-line can financially support the Friends at no cost to themselves! Please encourage all family and friends to sign-up to Easy Fundraising and a percentage of all your on-line shopping will be donated to the Friends. Most high street and on-line retailers support this scheme, including John Lewis, M & S, Next, Homebase, Amazon, eBay and many, many more!

Trusts and corporate sponsors provide financial assistance to some of our big-budget items, including sponsorship of concerts and the purchase and repair of instruments. If you can assist, or know someone who can, please contact: friends.of.hcyo@gmail.com or treasurer.fhcyo@gmail.com
