Fundraising and Commercial Sponsorship
The Society employs the services of a fund raiser in order to maximise the chances of gaining appropriate grants to support
the membership and our more ambitious concerts. In recent years this has enabled us to commission new music and perform with leading
orchestras such as the English Chamber Orchestra and London Mozart Players. We are indebted to the significant grants for the arts
received from Arts Council England, Orchestras Live and North Norfolk District Council as well as valued support from Sheringham
and Cromer town councils, Norfolk County Council, John Jarrold Trust, Foyle Foundation, Geoffrey Watling charity, Ernest Cook Trust,
Gresham's Foundation, Co-op Bank, Norwich and Peterborough Building Society and Lawyers Volunteering for the Arts.
We are also always pleased to work with commercial sponsors both locally or nationally, either for individual concerts
or for a longer period of time. The main vehicle for this is Programme advertising. Anyone interested in exploring this further should
contact the Treasurer via the contact page. A rate card is available.
Smaller donations from private individuals are also hugely welcomed as are the legacies which we have been pleased to receive.
During the year there are usually one or two fund-raising social events including Open Garden days and "Quiz and Chips" nights.
We greatly appreciate the assistance received from friends and supporters in enabling such events.
