It’s the last couple of days of fundraising and we are thrilled to be “overfunding”! Any additional donations will contribute towards costs that weren’t included in the initial fundraiser, including paying for a sound engineer and contributing towards the society’s travel to the festival! If you head over to our Facebook page you will be able to see a video of testimonials from our society telling you exactly what this project means to us! Please continue to share our project with your friends and family to help us on our way! We can’t say thank you enough times!

We can’t believe how far this project has come and it’s all thanks to you! The society has worked so hard promoting this campaign and working on fundraising ideas and we are so close to hitting our goal of £3000 and being able to take our show to the Fringe!

We had so much fun selling cakes in the Union today and raised nearly £100 for the pot! Thank you everyone who came along to the stall for a chat and a slice of cake. This has really helped towards our ultimate target of £3000!

Happy weekend everyone! This morning we braced the cold air and busked in Leeds town centre! We raised over £50 for the project and we had some lovely feedback from the public! We are another little step closer to reaching our £3000 target! Thank you everyone who watched and donated! Make sure you check out our Instagram page for a little preview...

Thanks to all of the generous contributions so far we can start to tick things off our shopping list! You have helped us pay for:

  • £240 worth of flyers and posters, which are essential for drawing in an audience the Edinburgh Fringe!
  • £150 for our props, equipment and insurance! 
  • A big chunk of our accommodation costs!

We are so excited to be able to put this event on, and it's all thanks to your generous donations and some hard fundraising work! Next week there will be a bake sale in the University Union and a 24-hour A Cappella-thon to look forward to so watch this space!  

Work has also started on new music to bring to the Fringe - it's all starting to come together and we couldn't be more excited! Here's a behind-the-scenes peek of our rehearsal time!
