Make a regular gift as a ‘Friend’

By becoming a ‘Friend’ of the Irene Taylor Trust, you can support our work with a monthly, quarterly or annual donation at any level that you feel comfortable.

As a small charity, ongoing regular donations make a vital contribution to our projects and organisation, helping us take transformative creative music making opportunities to hundreds of marginalised men, women and young people each year in prisons and in the community.

How to become a ‘Friend’

To set up a regular ‘Friends’ donation, please download and fill in the Friends standing order form: Irene Taylor Trust ‘Friends’ Form 2017

Setting up a ‘Friends’ standing order is the most cost effective way of making a regular donation to our work. It’s easy to cancel or change at any time.

Alternatively, you can set up a monthly donation on-line via Virgin Money Giving (a small fee is deducted from the amount we receive).

What regular donations can help to pay for:

£5 a month can pay for three young people to enter their portfolios for an Arts Award

£10 a month can buy and repair vital instruments and equipment

£25 a month can pay for beneficiaries to work in a state of the art music studio for two days

£50 a month can pay for 15 hours of specialist music tuition for groups of beneficiaries

£75 a month can pay for beneficiaries to record and produce a high quality CD of their music to share with their families

£100 a month can pay for a Musician in Residence to spend a day tutoring groups and individuals in prison each month

We’re very grateful for any level of support you’re able to give. All our Friends are kept to date on our work with annual reports and regular invitations to performances and special events.

“I had no idea of what to expect, and was absolutely knocked out by the whole experience. Absolutely gutting to think that this group may not get an opportunity like this again unless money and resources can be found. And words can’t express my admiration for the course tutors and the wonderfully warm and friendly lady officer who looked after us. A life-changing experience.” Belinda, Friend of ITT, after attending a Music in Prisons performance
