2020 sees the RAB TRUST celebrate 20 years of support for students of violin making. We are appealing to violin makers, restorers, bow makers and all involved in the trade to make this a very special anniversary. If you have read this far, you know how much we do to help today’s students become tomorrow’s successful makers and restorers.
How can you help?
OFFER work experience
DONATE tools, books or wood for our fundraising tool sales
MAKE a financial donation to the Trust
BUY a blanket to protect your precious violin, viola or cello from RAB chair Helen Michetschläger at Etsy. All profits (about 90% of the sale price) support the trust.
Funding is always needed to enable us to continue to make financial awards to students. If you’d like to help, please donate via our JustGiving page.
Our support over the last twenty years has come in a number of ways.
In 2005 the family of the late Wilfred Saunders (a founder member of the Trust) invited donations in his memory to be sent to us. On an ongoing basis, we receive generous donations of tools and materials; click for details.
We are also extremely grateful for long-term funding from charitable bodies such as the Radcliffe Trust, Education Services and the Robinson Trust. If your organisation would like to help in this way, please contact us.
Thanks are also due to the hosts of our website, 34sp.com, who provide free hosting for charities.
