Why join the Friends of Benslow ILS

Thank you cards

Please help us by joining the Friends of Benslow ILS

- if music is important to you and a part of your life

- if you think that supporting young musicians of the future, and the future of music in the UK, is worthwhile

- if helping to maintain and preserve valuable musical instruments is worthwhile, and in doing so give great pleasure to others

- if you think that music education is important to the social development and well-being of young people

- if you would like to give a young musician a helping hand


How your membership helps us

Core funding is the most difficult element for a charity to raise funding for from grant giving organisations.

Your membership can help in many ways

- by paying towards maintenance and repair

- by covering some of the day to day running costs of the scheme

- by allowing us to offer bursaries to those on low incomes

Without financial support in these ways we could not continue to support the next generation of musicians.


What does joining the Friends offer you

Membership offers you the chance to help and support us and to be involved with helping young music makers and their activities.

We are currently developing the possibility of concerts for Friends and Borrowers around the country. We hope to begin a programme of these in the near future. 

You will have the sure knowledge that not only is your support most gratefully received, but that you are also preserving both music and valuable instruments for generations to come.

You can support to different levels by becoming a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum Friend. Contact us for further details.
