Members of Gay Abandon pay a membership fee. The cost per member is currently:
- £22 per month for most people
- £11 per month for perople on low incomes, full-time students and people who are on income support or basic state pension, and
- free for people paying a carer and for disabled members who need to pay taxi fares.
Membership fees are paid by monthly standing order.
You’ll be expected to contribute towards the cost of your costume. When we travel, we often subsidise the cost, but members usually have to make a contribution.
We aim to to make the choir accessible to anybody, regardless of their ability to pay. We operate concessionary rates for people on low incomes. We try to subsidise costs where possible. And we fundraise, when necessary, to help cover costs.
As a member of Gay Abandon, we hope that you will help out with fund-raising efforts to keep the costs to individual members down. This might be performing at paying gigs, helping out with table-top sales or discos, or any other grand plans you can think of!
We’re also open to offers of financial help from any individuals or businesses that might want to sponsor us. Please contact us to discuss this!
