VOLUNTEERS
The very existence and success of the Concord organisation depends upon its wonderful army of volunteers who are willing to take on a wide variety of tasks to help the group undertake its activities. We are very grateful to all who give their time and expertise to assist our staff in giving the members the fullest opportunities to enjoy their music-making and performance. If you have a particular skill or area of interest that may be useful, please contact Lynne Eaton or any member of the instructional or support staff. Thank you.

ATTENDANCE
It is always important that, wherever possible, members attend all scheduled rehearsals and performances. This is especially true at this time of year when we strive to put out our very best possible standards to entertain the public. If absence is inevitable please let us know AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE so that we can make arrangements to cover the gap. If you’re stuck for transport just give us a call – we can almost always arrange to pick-up or drop-off members

REG CRISP FUND
All members of the Concord Family are reminded that the Reg Crisp Memorial Fund was set up by out late president’s family to assist any member who may be having difficulties in meeting the costs of participation. Small grants are available on a STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL basis. Pease contact RCS for details

CAN YOUR EMPLOYER HELP US ?
Many companies and organisations have a “Community Fund” which will donate to good causes (like Concord) especially if one of their employees is an active supporter of the group. Does your employer do this? Have you asked? It can just take a question to open the doors. Sometimes they will sponsor things like t-shirts of brochures, etc to get their company name out there. If you need any supporting material, we have some specially-designed information sheets and, of course, our shiny new AllStars flyers (see below). Make the ask – today !
