Simply use the special links below every time you shop online, and WFCS will receive a percentage donation on qualifying purchases from the e-tailer. It won’t cost you anything, but provides an invaluable boost to our charitable funds each year.
2. MAKE A DONATION
As an independent, self-funding Charity (no. 506826) we at Worcester Festival Choral Society are most grateful for any financial donations and support to help us continue the tradition of great choral music in Worcester. If you would like to make a small donation, this can be done via BACS (account no. 01268312 / sort-code 30-99-90).
3. JOIN THE CHORUS
