Become a Friend of Jackdaws

Jackdaws BirdsGood Friends and Best Friends provide enormous support to our work by contributing a regular income for Jackdaws. Our programme of courses runs throughout the year, alongside a diverse programme of inclusive music education projects for young people.

Jackdaws receives no arts subsidy, and relies on the fees for our courses, supplemented by donations from grant making trusts and individuals and most importantly, subscriptions from our Friends. In order to maintain our weekend music courses and our full programme of educational activities, Jackdaws needs to raise some £60,000 each year.

The support offered by our Good Friends and Best Friends is vital and very much appreciated. To acknowledge and show how grateful we are for your support, our Friends packages offer a range of benefits.

The first level of Friendship is a £5 monthly donation to become a Good Friend
