Our membership is spread around the county with a heavy rehearsal and concert schedule, this makes joint fund raising events limited and often based around concerts.
How can you help raise funds?
Donate goods for raffle and tombola at Christmas and Easter (hand them in at the rehearsal cafe)
Donate goods and services for the Bryanston auction at Easter
Set yourself a sponsored challenge (more about this further down the page)
Take part in our Christmas busking activities
Find out if your employer supports local charities
We have set up an online 'My Donate' donation page from which you can easily set your own challenge page and collect sponsorship securely online. Once your challenge is set up you can promote and monitor it using Google or Apple Apps.
You can find Help online if you get stuck setting up your challenge page.
Upcoming fundraising events

2014 - HCYO 12 hour sponsored non-stop music event (the longest informal concert ever).
A huge thanks to all those involved in the 12 hour music marathon (orchestra members and parents) - we raised just over £1000 - excellent result and well worth the sore heads the day after! Carl Clausen
2013 - Christmas Busking raised over £750. Thanks to all who participated at Basingstoke, Winchester, Hedge End and Gunwharf Quays.
