We are therefore dependent on the generosity of individual donors to enable Platinum to make plans for the future. Planning concert series, securing professional musicians for workshops, hiring performance venues and providing financial support for the Chorister Bursary Scheme, all rely on guaranteed, regular income. It is not possible to budget for worthwhile artistic endeavours without confidence that the finances are in place.
With this in mind, we have a launched a regular giving scheme: Evolve Friends. We trust the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) to process our donations and Gift Aid securely and have made the giving process as simple as possible. In recognition and thanks for your support, you will be acknowledged on the website and will receive regular news. Depending on your donation level, you may also receive advance notice of concerts, invitations to rehearsals and be invited to join Scott and the Platinum Team at annual events.
