    Story

    NYFTE 2021

    NYFTE (pronounced "Nifty") is the National Youth Folklore Troupe of England, a group of young people from all over the country who share in interest in traditional music, song and dance.

    You can find out more about is at our web site nyfte.org.uk

    We are a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers and funded by donations from supporters and the contributions of parents. We do not receive any funding from national folk organisations or government institutions. We require a steady flow of income to keep the team operating. Expenses include: keeping members supplied with costumes and equipment, first aid supplies, keeping the team van on the road, expenses for tutors and team organisers and covering some of the costs of our training and performance events so that the full price of attendance does not fall on parents. During 2020 we had to switch our training on-line, so we can now add video conferencing fees to the expenses!

    In normal years much of our fundraising takes place at live events. We know that many of our usual events will not be taking place this year, or at least will not be taking place in a form that can support 40 young team members and their families.

    As the UK comes out of pandemic lock-down we are extremely keen to create opportunities for the team to meet and practice in person. On-line events have their place, but they also have their limits and are not as good as face to face encounters at promoting the friendships and sharing that are very much a part of the NYFTE ethos. We anticipate that our training costs will be higher than usual this year since we expect that, at least at first, we will not be able to bring the whole team together in one place, so will be paying multiple venue fees.

    During 2020 we received generous support online from supporters and we hope for the same during 2021 when our normal routine of events will continue to be disrupted. We also recognise that an online form of giving may be more convenient for some of our supporters.

    Due to the way the the crowdfunding platform works for organisations such as ours (which is not a charity), the funding has to be run through an individual and their bank account. As chairman of NYFTE I promise that all funds received, (less the processing fees) will be transferred to the NYFTE general account from which those funds will be spent on the general maintenance and expenses of the team.
