THAMES friends, and the young musicians it supports, has benefited from two very generous donations recently. The first, an anonymous donation for £1000 earlier in the year will allow us to commit to supporting projects where professional musicians will visit the Saturday Music Centre to work with our young musicians. Thanks ever so much for this support for the young musicians of Tower Hamlets.
When private individuals who are UK taxpayers make donations through Virgin Money Giving (http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charities/thamesfriends), we are able to reclaim Gift Aid – for each donation made this way, THAMES friends will receive an extra 25% So, please keep those donations coming!
Following that, Talbot Underwriting Ltd also made a very welcome donation of £2000, that will allow us to continue to make contributions to projects at the Saturday Music Centre, as well as support a planned tour by the Tower Hamlets Youth Orchestra. Thanks Talbot Underwriting – this gift will certainly be put to good use!
