£377raised of £300 target by 31 supporters

    Weʼve raised £377 to Help Halifax Choral Society raise the money needed for their fantastic bicentenary concerts

    Halifax, United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 13th July 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Hope you can help me, and be entertained too.

    Buy an online copy of The Buddhist And The Banker: for just £2.00 (or £3.00 for a paper copy plus P&P) and help me reach my target.

    NB you can change the amount suggested by Justgiving to any amount of your choice.

    What it's all about:
    Halifax Choral Society is the oldest choir in the UK. There are some fantastic concerts lined up for our Bicentenary celebrations (2017 to 2018). This includes the commissioning of an entirely new oratorio celebrating the Life of John The Baptist (Halifax's patron saint) and the performance of Haydn's The Creation which was the Society's very first concert 200 years ago.

    The costs of these amazing performances cannot be covered by ticket sales alone and so members of the choir are each trying to raise what we need.

    I have been writing comic poems and stories for a couple of years and I will be delighted if you enjoy them and it will help a good cause too. My plan is to sell 100+copies either as an ebook or paper booklet of this collection of comic poems and short stories.

    Please can you help me reach my target?. If you can spare £2.00 I will send you a link to the electronic version or a PDF depending upon the device you use. If you prefer a nicely bound paper copy pledge £3 (and please add £1.75 to cover postage).

    Thanks for your support.

      A massive thank you to everyone who supported the fundraising appeal for Halifax Choral. My page expires in a few days so I wanted you to know that, with your help we have raised £377. The first recording of The Holy Face took place last night at Huddersfield Town Hall. It is a magnificent work and a fitting celebration of 200 years of music-making. Thank you for being a part of it Wendy xxx
