Membership and Company Sponsorship
We are also in contact with local businesses with a view to making their employees aware of WDCS, to see if they might enjoy singing and inviting them initially to come along to our rehearsals. In common with Choral Societies throughout the land, we are always looking for keen new singers - if you yourself are interested, please do not hesitate to let us know!

Allied with this, we have embarked on a programme of Corporate Sponsorship, whereby we are offering local industrial, commercial and professional businesses the opportunity to participate, for certain defined benefits, in the funding of our concert activities, as well as the engagement of our orchestras and professional soloists. If you would like to find out more about this programme, or if you know of a business you feel might be interested in it, please contact:
Henry Ibberson - 01902 701136 - ibberson@uwclub.net or
Mike Coope - 01902 700426 - mike@sensorland.com




Internet Fund Raising

As part of our future planning, we have linked with an organization now being used by charities up and down the country, including Music Societies and Choirs, called easyfundraising.org.uk. Simply put, this is a Discount Club, supported by all the major stores and retailers, whereby anybody wishing to purchase anything on-line can click through a link to easyfundraising.org.uk, then proceed to the retailer or company of their choice. That retailer/ company/service provider recognizes our link with the scheme and will then make a donation to our cause, a small percentage of the cost of the product or service purchased – it’s that simple and at no cost whatsoever to us!

Please have a look for yourselves – our WDCS cause page is :-
http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/wdcs

Just click on this link, then go to “See how it works “ where there is more explanation and a short video. Visit “Browse Retailers” to see the ever-growing list of companies supporting the scheme, which has so far raised nearly £12m for charities in the UK.

All of us, our family and friends and anyone we know, just by simply clicking a link and then buying what we/they want in the normal way, can be raising extra funds for the Choir. Who wouldn’t want to do it?

Give it a go – and let Eileen or Henry know what you think, or if you are having any difficulty!



Thanks to our other Fund Raisers...
Congratulations to two members of the society for their time and effort in raising much needed funds:


The 100 Club
Stella has announced the end of year total surplus in the 100 Club as £85.




Anniversary Card Sales
Sheila's Anniversary Card sales this year raised £190. However, the total raised over the past years is approaching £6,000. Brilliant! Well done, Sheila.

A massive thank you from Society Members to you both for all your hard work.
