This Is A Public Service Announcement…

Hey people,

We are writing to request a few moments of your time to ask you to consider making a donation to Strummerville. However small, all donations are greatly received and really help us to continue our work.

85p in every £1 donated to us goes directly into supporting new music, nurturing new talent and developing projects and programmes. All of which offer opportunities to people through music who would not normally have access to this type of help.

Our expenditure:

♦ 55% support for new music and emerging talent
♦ 30% support for projects and initiatives that give opportunities to people through music
♦ 15% running costs

As long standing Friends of Strummerville you know the kind of work we do and we hope that you feel part of a movement that is making a real difference to people’s lives through music.

We have set up two options for you to donate via online or text:

Option1: Online Option 2: via Text

Donate any amount via our secure PayPal account (you don’t need a Paypal account to do this)

All you need to do is text STRU01 + the amount you want to donate to 70070 for example, text:  STRUM01 £10

Alternatively if you would like to organise a Strummerville event in your own town with local bands in order to raise money for the charity please download our Fundraising Guidelines →

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for getting touch.
    We will email you, as we’ve never had this trouble from Canada before.
    Maybe PayPal have changed how they do things, we will look into right away.

    Many thanks

    I recently organized an event in Toronto and would like to make a donation to Strummerville. I am having trouble with paying by credit card as the paypal screen asks me for the county. We don’t have county’s, we have provinces in Canada and there doesn’t seem to be an option for Ontario.

    I’d also prefer to pay in Canadian dollars ratehr than pounds.

    Can you give me some guidance please.

    Hello Matt,

    Many thanks for your donation and very kind words about Strummer of Love. It has put a massive strain on the charity and we hope to have news soon.

    Kindest regards,

  • Matt Fick

    I just made a donation of 250 pounds (December 1, 2012). If possible, I would like my donation to be used to defray expenses arising from the Strummer of Love event. I had a very beautiful time at the event, and hope to see it repeated in the future. In a better economic climate, with better weather, and with the artistic reputation of Joe and The Clash continuing to grow over time, I don’t think that you will see a monetary loss again.

    Best Wishes,

    Matt Fick
