We would like to thank all our donors for their kind support.
Every year NYO musicians raise funds to help support the year’s orchestra. Setting out with a goal of raising £100 each, NYO musicians are as creative and dedicated to their fundraising as they are to their playing.
Musicians organise fundraising concerts – in groups and on their own, participate in sponsored activities likes runs and cycling races, undertake Grade 1 exams on a new instrument, complete large chores or jobs around the house like car washing, gardening, and babysitting, hold cake sales, and numerous other activities.
In the past year they have held fundraising concerts, organised a sponsored (indoor bicycle!) cycle challenge, designed and sewn cat nip toys to sell, busked in all temperatures, rebuilt fences on farms, and challenged themselves to learn an entirely new instrument.
In 2017, their fundraising is especially personal as all fundraising by musicians (what we like to call ‘orchestra gift’) goes towards our exciting campaign to fund every seat in NYO by 2020. The orchestra’s efforts directly contribute towards our very large target that keeps NYO running (over £1.5 million every year!) and showcases the commitment each musician has to NYO.
