Port Sunlight Orchestra grant award

Small Grants Award

 

Port Sunlight Orchestra were delighted to learn recently that a grant application submitted to the Foyle Foundation was successful.  Further information on the Foyle Foundation can be found on their website www.foylefoundation.org.uk

The room in the Lady Lever Art Gallery where the majority of our concerts are performed is long and narrow and a regular comment is that when the conductor addresses the audience he cannot be heard at the back. Our new grant award has been used to purchase a PA system and microphone so he may be heard comfortably throughout the room.

The money has also been used to purchase a portable loop induction system so that those who are hard of hearing will be able to listen using the ‘T’ setting on their hearing aid.

It is hoped that the PA system will be made available to other charitable groups in the Wirral area on request. Each request will be considered by the committee so requests will need to be submitted well in advance to info@portsunlightorchestra.org.uk
