To support us, there are lots of things you can do:
1. Become a Patron. Patrons can reserve seats at our concerts, and are invited to special events from time to time such as receptions, open rehearsals and master classes.
2. Join our mailing list (we will send you brief details of concerts and events, and will not pass on your details).
4. Buy a season ticket. You make a saving and we feel appreciated.
5. Remember us when you write your will.
7. Sponsorship. We welcome sponsorship by individuals and companies. There are many opportunities, for example the package for a concert includes:
Concert tickets and programmes
Interval drinks in the dedicated sponsors' area
Advertising in our concert programme
Publicity leading up to the event in local and regional press
Publicity and links on our website
Becoming a Haffner Patron
The cost for being a Haffner Patron is £40.
(price for 2020 - 21 season)
Patrons give us an annual donation as an indication of their support.
They can have their seats at concerts reserved, which is a benefit as seats are unnumbered. Patrons are also invited to special events from time to time such as receptions, open rehearsals, and master classes, and have their names printed in our concert programmes (unless they prefer not).
To become a Patron, click the "Book here" button
This is like a ticket purchase, (or “booking”), and links to TryBooking.
If you require more than one Patron’s membership, enter the appropriate number of people. If you have a query about becoming a patron, email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are extremely grateful for the continuing support of our loyal Haffner Patrons.
Raise money for Haffner while you shop!
If you shop online you could raise funds for Haffner without any additional cost to you.
Haffner Orchestra has recently registered online with Easy Fundraising which, as the name suggests, is an easy way of raising extra funds for the orchestra to enable it to continue to deliver its fine concert seasons to such a high standard. If you shop online, whether it be supermarket shopping, renewing car/home insurance, Christmas presents, music etc, you can raise additional money for Haffner without it costing a penny more to you. Many major retailers are part of this scheme – most supermarkets, Amazon, Argos, Comet, Currys, Next, insurance companies, to give examples of a few. Your shopping will cost you the same as usual, but the retailer will make a payment to your chosen cause.
How do I register?
For further details visit the site www.easyfundraising.org.uk and create a login name and password. You will then be able to choose a cause to support (eg, Haffner Orchestra, Lancaster) then find your retailer through the site.
How does it work?
Visit the Easy Fundraising site (www.easyfundraising.org.uk), log in using the details you registered with and click on the retailer’s site from there. The retailer will then donate a small percentage of the purchase to the registered cause of your choice, eg, Haffner Orchestra, Lancaster, costing you absolutely nothing extra.
In addition, if you make www.easyfundraising.org.uk your home page, all the clicking you do will generate funds too.
Please tell friends and relations about this so that we can raise additional funds.
