Membership of the choir is very cost effective with fees spread throughout the year.
The annual subscription is £35 (standard) / £30 (senior 60+) / £15 (FE students) / free (school pupils 16+).
Weekly fee £3 to cover costs – premises, MD, accompanist, music hire etc.
The weekly fee must be paid in full for all the rehearsals, including any that may be missed, by each member. Section representatives record attendance.
Your annual and weekly payments can be treated by HMRC as donations under the Gift Aid scheme.
Under this scheme, if you are a UK tax payer and pay sufficient tax, the DCU can claim from HMRC the tax you paid on income that you use to pay your subs.
