As we are a registered charity (No: 1142255), we rely on member income and donations to fund our activities.
How your support helps
Aside from our musical directors and tutors, ELCB is a volunteer run organisation and it is really important that we keep our termly fees low so that the band is accessible to everyone.
The band is very proud that we have been able to keep fees at the same level for several years running whilst still being able to provide loan instruments free of charge, low cost lessons and a wide variety of new musical experiences. ELCB runs at a small surplus so that we could survive for one term without external funding, so we are always looking for ways to improve upon this and ensure we are able to provide low cost lessons and participation in musical ensembles for all.
