Why we're asking for money
The aim of the Charity Symphony Orchestra is, and always has been, to give as much as possible to the charity we're supporting. In order to do this, we've kept costs low by keeping the venue small and not hiring expensive music, or soloists. After any concert, however, we always have to take something out of what has been collected to pay for these.
This concert is one of the most ambitious we've put on both musically and financially. We've already planned this to ensure we're guaranteed to be able to give some money to HIOWAA after we've paid for everything, but your donations here will allow us to donate even more.
Donations will pay for the hire of Romsey Abbey and rehearsal space (£1,000), hire of the music (£300) , advertising (£200) and the rewards being offered (£500). Anything we make above this will go straight to HIOWAA.
