Hampshire County Youth Bands Association membership. The HCYB Association is a charitable organisation (No 297707) that supports the 3 bands in the HCYB pyramid by funding essential equipment, sheet music, room hire, van hire, tutors, instrument purchase and repairs, tours and tour clothing.  For essential funds HCYBA rely on parental contribution to a voluntary membership scheme, set at £50 per family per year, which most families feel able to do. We hope as many of you as possible feel willing and able to contribute. The money can be paid in one £50 payment, or termly in 1 x £20 and 2 x £15 instalments. Direct Debit is available.  Please contact the Treasurer, Lee Farley for further information.  If you are a tax payer, please take a couple of minutes to complete the “Gift Aid” section which enables us to claim a further 25% of tax back from the government, giving the Association valuable extra income at no extra cost to you.
