Member subscriptions and gift aid

Please submit your subscription to our treasurer – £60/yr (first concert free for newcomers), or by electronic payment to “Saffron Walden Orchestral Society – SWSO”, at Barclays Bank Plc, sort code. 20-00-87, Acct. 90850217.

A new member that joins the orchestra during the season such that there are two or fewer concerts remaining will be entitled to a 50% reduction in the subscription payable for that year.

Payment is due on 1st August. To save on admin for the committee, please set up a standing order. 

If you are a taxpayer, you can make your subscription worth 25% more to the orchestra at no cost to yourself, by making it under the Gift Aid scheme. You can also help the orchestra minimise its administration costs by paying your subscription annually by standing order. Download the Gift Aid (.doc), and return it completed to our treasurer.

Please don’t regard subscriptions as optional; the orchestra does have significant costs to cover.
