To help “tomorrow’s musicians today” the Trust needs supporters itself. A small monthly or quarterly payment, on which we reclaim GiftAid, helps cover running costs. If you enjoy music you could make a real contribution to its future by joining the Cherubim Club.
People have many different reasons for joining but here are some of them:
“I attended a concert Maxwell organised where Michael Muskett played hurdygurdy and musette. Inspired by this I eventually took up the Northumbrian smallpipes, which I now play with a folk band and at celebrations. Because I get so much out of music, I’m glad to do my bit enabling others develop expertise a bit sooner than I did!”
Mary James MBE
“Growing up in a musical family I remember just how important music was to me. Knowing a lot of families can’t afford the cost of an instrument a child may need I’m delighted to contribute what I can.”
Nigel & Linda Hackett
“As parents of Cherubim Young Artist Eddy Hackett, we value immensely the vital support Cherubim has given him in his progression from student to concert performer. By becoming subscribers we would like to support future musicians in the same way. Cherubim really is a godsend to young musicians.”
Club members receive our newsletter and special offers on all our concert presentations. Join today and you get a signed CD by the world famous harpsichordist and Cherubim patron Trevor Pinnock CBE (while stocks last)
Donating musical instruments
While we are delighted to receive offers of professional quality instruments (only), please note that they do need to be in good playing condition.
If you are thinking of donating an instrument please drop us a line with details of the make, model and date of the instrument in the first instance. When instruments haven’t been played for an extended period of time they may often need a varying degree of renovation before they can be loaned out in the condition that a young musician demands.
If an instrument is suitable but requires restoration we will be happy to advise on this, but respectfully ask donors to take responsibility for this before passing it to the Trust.
As we are entirely dependant on donations, grants and legacies, please consider helping us via the following funding options:
Download a Gift Aid pdf to increase the value of your gift to the trust by 25% and if you are a higher rate taxpayer, to claim certain tax reliefs for yourself.
