Support the Choir and ‘Great Choral Music’ 

Worcester Festival Choral Society (WFCS) is an independent, self-funding charitable organisation (Reg No: 506826).  We are a friendly group of amateur singers, enthusiastic about classical choral music and bringing it to our wonderful City. All Chorus and Committee members’ time is given freely. Our main sources of revenue are derived from ticket sales, members’ subscriptions and partnerships with individual patrons. Trusts and businesses who share our vision also participate in a range of ways, which we gratefully acknowledge. We would be extremely grateful for your support at any level and look forward to hearing from you!

  • Shop online

    Shop online at either AmazonSmile or via TheGivingMachine and select WFCS as your chosen charity, and we'll receive a percentage donation of your purchase value - at no cost to you! Both are fantastic routes enabling you to contribute to WFCS funds when doing your normal online shopping. They won’t cost you anything, but provide an invaluable, small additional income towards our Society's funds year.  

    • AMAZON: Anyone shopping on Amazon can support Worcester Festival Choral Society by simply accessing Amazon via the UK AmazonSmile site, and selecting us as your chosen charity (using your usual Amazon account) to benefit from your future purchases. After that, whenever you shop via AmazonSmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the net purchase price to WFCS at no cost to you (excl VAT, returns and shipping fees).
       
    • THE GIVING MACHINEWFCS is now also registered with TheGivingMachine – a registered charity that enables shoppers to support chosen charities when shopping online with more than 2,200 popular retailers from M&S, Argos, Morrisons and Boots to WH Smith, Currys PC World, Pets at Home and B&Q. For every eligible purchase you make, TheGivingMachine receives a small sales commission from the retailer and passes on up to 70% of that commission to us as a charitable donation, at no cost to you. The percentage received varies, but is typically between 0.5-5% of your purchase value. To get started simply register as a giver at TheGivingMachine and select Worcester Festival Choral Society (code 267141) as your chosen charity (in fact you can choose up to 4 charities to support) or, use this direct link to our WFCS TheGivingMachine support page: After that, whenever you want to shop online, simply reach your chosen retailer's online shop via TheGivingMachine and shop as normal!
