Centenary season membership / sponsorship drive
A member list will be circulated over the next couple of weeks for you to tell us about any organisation/school/business where you have a contact. We’re looking for sources of potential members and / or sponsorship. For example, they may have employees or colleagues that they would sponsor as members, or they may offer to sponsor us in exchange for concert tickets and publicity. We are hoping our Centenary season will provide a great opportunity for recruiting new, particularly younger, choir members so would welcome suggestions for organisations that may be interested in some form of sponsorship.
Concert Programmes Advertising
If anyone knows a business or organisation that would be interested in advertising in our concert programmes, please speak to Kevin Ilsley, Chairman.
