Give Back Friday 2022
Rather than joining in with the Black Friday shopping bonanza, we've decided, for the third year in a row, to reframe it here at Presto as Give Back Friday (or more specifically 'Give Back Friday to Monday') where for four days (from 25th to 28th of November - UK time) we will be donating 5% of all the revenue we receive to three local charities whose aims are closely aligned with our own. Read a little more information about them below.
The first of these is the Armonico Consort, based in Warwick. Armonico Consort is a critically acclaimed UK choir and instrumental ensemble renowned for its inspiring concerts and imaginative singing education programme including composition projects for children with special needs. Armonico’s initiative now includes singing workshops for people in retirement homes and care homes, and a ‘Memory Singers’ weekly workshop in Warwick for those living with dementia and their carers.
The second is the Leamington Music, the principal promoter of chamber and early music in Leamington, which aims to maintain our town a musical centre dedicated to promoting excellent music.
The third is the Orchestra of the Swan, a British chamber orchestra formed in 1995. The Swan is passionate about audience inclusivity and blurring the lines between genres through its adventurous and accessible programming.
