TMVC Patron’s Scheme

Hello and allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Christine McDermott and I have very recently moved to Tideswell.  I feel very privileged to have been invited to become the Patrons’ Officer of Tideswell Male Voice Choir.

I sincerely hope that my contribution to the TMVC will be in providing a service to the very necessary and important members who underpin the infrastructure of the Choir.  We need and depend on patronage and my aim will be to, not only increase patronage but to ensure that each patron knows how important their support is and how valued each and everyone is.

The Choir genuinely appreciates your continued interest and financial commitment to them.  We pledge to use your donations, and any attendant “Gift Aid” details connected to them, in a thoughtful and judicious way.

Your generous donations help the Choir to finance their concerts and events, not only for development of their own musical, education, personal and social experiences, but also to help them raise monies and donate to other worthwhile Charities.

We sincerely hope that the great satisfaction, bond of fellowship and musical enjoyment that the Choir experience is shared by all our Patrons, supporters and our audiences.

Once again, sincere thanks to all of you.  It is reassuring and heartening to know who our true and loyal friends are. We look forward to seeing you all throughout 2018.


We seek a ‘Patron’s donation’ of about £20 per year for Tideswell Male Voice Choir (TMVC) and some people are particularly generous.  Letters about renewing subscriptions should be in the post but a donation can be made at any time.
