OOTS Friends and Patrons

Friends of OOTS is a dedicated group of supporters that make a vital contribution to funding our artistic programming and our work in schools and care homes. Friends also help as volunteers at concerts, in the office and with the Orchestra’s community work

A few examples of how your subscription could make a difference:

  • £50 buys a music stand
  • £100 pays for a piano tuner
  • £1,500 funds a series of visits to primary schools

Get involved… play your part and help us share our music with the widest possible audience!

View the list of our current Patrons.

And to make even more of an impact, every donation made to OOTS until September 2019 is eligible for match funding 1:1 by Arts Council England.  And don’t forget to tick the Gift Aid box. If you are a UK taxpayer, your annual subscription will benefit from Gift Aid, increasing the value of your support by 25%.
