We are asking you to consider making a regular annual donation to ECO, or if you already do this to encourage grandparents, godparents or other interested parties to do so. It does not have to be a large sum. For example, you could promise £10 per annum.

Everyone who signs up to make a regular donation becomes a ‘Friend of ECO’. Money raised from the subscriptions and concerts varies depending on the size of the orchestra and the costs associated with each concert. Money pledged by ‘Friends’ provides a regular source of income enabling us to plan ahead. If you would like to help us by becoming a ‘Friend of ECO’ please get in touch or donate using the links below.
