Become a Friend of The Brickmakers for £1.25 per year



Like many of you, we have been scratching our head since the announcement of the possible closure of The Brickmakers, as to something positive we can do.   So we have been working on an idea that we think would help secure a route forward for The Brickmakers.

You will no doubt be aware the dilemma the team face of leaving at the end of January owing to an untenable financial situation.
I know the The Brickmakers have been overwhelmed with the public support  and social media support of the indelible mark The Brickmakers has made on the City’s music scene.  They have proudly contributed to the beating heart of live music in Norwich
Numerous comments have been asked along the lines of “What can I do?”  so we have an idea
Become a Friend of The Brickmakers. 

In essence it is very simple
Sign up to become a friend  We have suggested  £1.25 per year, (23p of this is processing fees but we could not find another way round this, I am sure there are some of you out there better at Fundraising than us, so feel free to pick that up   NEWSFLASH NEWSFLASH  on 20th October Pay PAL have informed us they have amended their charges to 11.25p on £1.25 donation, 30p on £5 donation and 55p on a £10 donation. .
