As you can imagine we are financially very stretched and we estimate that it will cost up to £20,000 per year to maintain the choir. So much good will has gone into making the choir viable and we are indebted to so many for their generous contributions.
We are always keen to raise more money for the choir in order to provide further opportunities for the children to perform and take part in musical events. If you know of anyone who could help us raise money for the choir please get in touch.
The choir presents excellent opportunities to companies looking to support a local organisation that is fast developing wider recognition. As part of the successful Newham/Barnsley partnership that saw the Olympic host borough form a strategic alliance with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, the choir performed at the Olympic Stadium well before the games took place. In February 2012 the choir was invited to perform at the world renowned Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, performing alongside the adult ‘Sing Live!’ choir.
As a direct consequence of these high profile shows the choir has received excellent local media coverage and burgeoning support from local dignitaries, respected business people, education establishments and MP’s.
Companies seeking to raise their profile and standing within the Barnsley area, but who may also wish to generate a wider market presence, should consider carefully a sponsorship opportunity. If you would like to discuss a sponsorship opportunity please contact James Dickson via the email link below.
