HCO 2018-19 Donation Recommendation

Download these details and a Standing Order Form to send to your bank here: HCO Donations

The Havering Concert Orchestra is a charity but it receives no grants or other external funding to help support its work. The orchestra does not have a formal subscription system but members of the orchestra are strongly encouraged to make donations, in place of a subscription, to help towards the running costs.

Recommended Annual Donation

The suggested annual donation is £110 reduced to £95 for those who would normally qualify for concessions e.g. pensioners, students and those who are unemployed etc. There are several ways to pay; by the term/concert at a broadly proportionate rate. The orchestra suggests a small reduction on donations paid directly into our bank account.  This reflects the lower cost of operating by these methods as compared to cheques and cash. Many members prefer to pay by monthly standing order. Please see the table below for full details.

Annual recommendation £110.00 £95.00
Discount annual recommendation (for direct payment/standing order into bank account) £100.00 £85.00
Per term/concert £37.00 £32.00
Discount per term/concert recommendation (for direct payment into bank account) £34.00 £29.00
