The Tars do what we do because we love making music together and because we can help good causes along the way. That usually means performing without charge to support charitable events, and especially RNLI fundraisers-our favourite charity. Sometimes we are paid to perform and then we find ourselves with money in the bank. Whilst we have some expenses to cover, we are very protective of our “not for profit” status and so, when we have accumulated a surplus, we look for a good cause to support. That is why we have recently donated £750 to the “Youth2Youth” charity in our local area. This charity is working hard to provide much needed facilities for young people and children on the Bere Peninsula and is in the midst of building new Youth Club premises. We hope our donation will help to progress their project.
