Our Newsletter and Happy Holidays!

December 21, 2017

As we near the end of 2017, we’ve been reflecting on the year behind us – the losses and the more positive changes too. 2017 has been an incredibly difficult year for so many, especially the poorest and most vulnerable in our society.

Here at the Fund our commitment to PRS for Music members, ex-members and their families is stronger than ever. We’ve made many changes in the last twelve months and we sincerely hope they’ve been and will continue to be beneficial to those in need. If you missed our survey earlier this year, please do take a look if you’d like to give us any feedback, or suggest your own ideas. For full information and all the latest news, please hit the red link below to read our newsletter in full.

2017 Newsletter.

Lastly, a huge thank you to all of you who have been in touch throughout the year, whatever the circumstance, we love hearing from you. To our Committee, our Trustees, Patrons and of course all of the PRS for Music members we serve, we wish you a peaceful holiday season, and a very happy New Year.

Best Wishes, all of us at the Fund.
