Why Gift Aid is important to us


When you pay your subscriptions, a percentage can be claimed back from HMRC (25%) if you are a UK tax payer.  This ultimately helps us keep subscriptions low.

We have to hold records of those people who wish to allow their subscriptions to be 'gift-aided'. Please download a copy of the form you will need to complete or ask the Treasurer for a copy.

Thank you. £230.41 was collected at our recent concert for the Shoreham Food Bank.

Your donation has been given to them.

Paying subs:

Subs are currently £40 per term although only £20 for new members. Subs (or Friends Membership) can be paid by cash or cheque (in envelope to Treasurer), although more and more members are paying on-line.

If you want to sing with us but cannot afford the Subs, please speak to the Chair (in confidence) and we can hopefully help you.
