The many ways to support Prema
Prema is truly lucky to have so many brilliant people who give their time, money and expertise to ensure that Prema "the South West's Flagship arts centre" continues to go from strength to strength.
Raising the Roof for Prema - thank you!
In the summer of 2015 we undertook a massive building project at Bethesda Chapel. The entire project cost £370,000 and we were so fortunate to have been supported by you, our supporters and a range of charitable and grant-making trusts. We were blown away by the kindness and generosity of so many of our friends (old and new) who helped us to raise almost £50,000 in donations. Thank you all - you're amazing!
You can donate in several ways
As you might imagine, this small, brave, independent arts centre in rural
Gloucestershire is always looking for imaginative ways to boost income so that we’re able to continue to support such a brilliant, broad programme of things to do and see. We’ve trimmed down our overheads to a bare minimum and so many of our activities are full but we still need our supporters’ donations to maintain such an ambitious, affordable programme.
In the coming months and years we hope to do a bit more building work and update some of the fixtures and fittings around the building and so your donation will help us to keep Prema fresh and bang up-to-date! Our donations box (just by the main office) is there all the time and can be used for both coins and cash notes. Simply drop the money into the box when visiting Prema.
If you'd like to make a donation by cheque please make it payable to Prema Arts Centre.
We can also accept a donation via your credit or debit card - you can do this in person, over the telephone or by clicking here.
If you wanted to set up monthly direct debit then we can give you our account number and sort code (just ask at the office).
If you're a UK tax payer please make sure that you GiftAid any donation you make as it means that we can claim back an additional 25% on your cash/card/cheque/online donation.
The Gift of Time
Do you have any spare time to give? We're always looking for volunteers to help at performances and music gigs as well as weekday work around the building and in the office. Perhaps you're an expert with a paintbrush and might like to help us in redecorating the building at certain points of the year? Perhaps you might consider helping distribute posters and programmes around some of the local towns and cities? Or maybe you'd like to join us in doing the mailout - stuffing programmes in envelopes, drinking tea and having a good natter. If you have time on your hands, we'd love to hear from you - email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll take it from there.
Bed an Artist
Quite often our visiting performers and musicians need a bed for the night. Do you have a spare room or two which now and again you might think about letting an artist or two sleep over for just one night? All they ever need is a warm, clean room with a bed and some tea and toast the morning after? Our friends who have given a bed to an artist tell us that it's been a lovely experience and we've had reports of some great conversations over a cocoa after the performance at Prema. We always give you free tickets for the show if you're putting up one or more of the performers. Have you got a spare room? Could you help us find a bed for the night for an artist? Email email@example.com if you feel you can help.
