The band relies mainly on subs payments from its members along with donations from the listening public at concerts to keep going. This money is used to pay for new music, the hiring of our rehearsal space and public liability insurance. No member of the band receives any money for playing – although we do offer a small fee to those players who give their time to help us out.
If you would like to help the band out, you can do so in a few ways.
Shop Online and Raise Funds
EasyFundraising is a shopping directory listing some of your favourite online stores including Argos, Next, Debenhams, John Lewis, Toys R Us, HMV and over 600 others. Just use the links on the easyfundraising site whenever you shop online and, at no extra cost to you, we’ll receive a free donation of up to 15% from every purchase you make. It really is that simple!
It’s completely FREE to register and you won’t pay a penny more for your shopping when you use the easyfundraising site. In fact you can even SAVE MONEY as many retailers offer discounts, special offers and even ‘e-vouchers’ exclusive to easyfundraising.
If you shop online anyway then why not raise valuable extra funds for us by using this fantastic scheme. All you need to do is visit www.easyfundraising.org.uk/morleyband and when you register, select Morley & District Concert Band as the organisation you wish to support.
Search the Web and Raise Funds
You can also raise funds when you search the Web – with easysearch, a search engine with a difference!
When you search the Web with easysearch instead of Google or any other search engine, you’ll raise funds for us with every search you make! Just like easyfundraising it’s completely free to use and if you make just 10 searches a day, you could raise £20 a year – or more – for us, just by switching to easysearch.
What’s more, easysearch is a ‘super’ search engine that combines the strengths of several search providers together – Yahoo!, MSN Windows Live Search, Ask.com and many more. easysearch tracks down the most relevant and accurate results from across the Web, which means you’ll find what you’re looking for quickly and easily every time – all in one ‘easy’ search.
Check out our unique easysearch page at http://morleyband.easysearch.org.uk and use it every time you search the Web.
PayPal Donations Scheme
If you don’t want to use either of the above methods, you can make a one off donation of any amount using the button below. You will be redirected to PayPal, choose the amount you would like to donate and in a few easy steps you’ll be finished!
Thank you on behalf of all of us at Morley & District Concert Band.
