Instead of charging for many events, the Friends choose to fund them and make them free so everyone can join in and enjoy them. Where possible, we offer free activities by paying for services and professionals directly out of the charitable contributions and donations.
We also employ professional entertainers and services, which means we do have to charge a small cost for some events, members get these at a reduced price.
You do not need to be a member to volunteer or get involved.
