The High Street Bells Choir initially started without funding. We took a 'build it and they will come' approach. The Choir operated wholly as a voluntary organisation until it received welcome funding from Darebin Council, a number of individual philanthropists and a significant contribution from the Clifton Hill/North Fitzroy branch of the Bendigo Bank.
Funding is essential to the continued running of the Choir, and allows us to employ an Admin Assistant to develop procedures for rehearsal and events and a Musical Director to lead the Choir.
The Choir could not continue without the generous support of its sponsors. Thank you.
