The 13th Season of our CD Stall raised £1,149 from just 7 concerts taking our running total to £12,881. The secret of this ongoing success remains two-fold: (1) the fantastic response to our appeals for CD donations, as demonstrated by our appeal at the March 2018 concert, and (2) Our loyal band of enthusiastic purchasers for whom a visit to the CD Stall is an essential part of their evening.
Following the March 2018 appeal we received some 450 ‘new to us’ CDs at the April concert and this continued through the Summer break to the point where we had 950 ‘new-to-us’ CDs checked, priced and ready by the start of this season. These will be introduced at the rate of at least 120 CDs per concert throughout this season – with a mixture of all our music categories at each concert. So! – there should be something ‘new’ to interest everyone at every concert. Please come and look!!
We will maintain our 3 for 2 Offer throughout this Season
The new season is going very well and has raised £1,200 after six concerts, taking our running total to £14,081 which means we have passed another landmark! So we now have a new target of £15,000 by next Christmas! The January Sale was not a record but raises £246, which represented a remarkable number of CDs!
Remember that our REFURBISHED CD STALL now provides much improved searching – but, if you cannot find what you want, please ask because we might have a trick up or sleeve that could help!!!
For newcomers – since October 2004, members have generously donated their surplus/unwanted CDs and DVDs (and have even scrounged from family and friends!!). These have been re-sold on concert evenings with all proceeds going directly into the Club’s Piano Fund. Many people make a visit to the CD stall an essential part of their evening, so please don’t miss out. You will find the stall on the ground floor in the Winter Gardens, at the right hand side of the stairs up to the balcony. We are open from shortly after 7 pm before the concert and throughout the interval.
The success of the stall depends entirely on the generosity of both donors and ‘customers’ – so please keep the CDs and DVDs coming in and please visit the stall on concert evenings. If you have a number of CDs or DVDs to donate and would like to have them collected, please contact Tony Hudson on 01943 430798 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The success of this venture is apparent from the results, which are updated after each concert.
