Some guidelines for charities who wish to apply for funding.

A request must come from a registered charity and ideally it should be for a specified, fully costed project.

The PMC Trustees meet in February to start the process of sorting through the various applications and the date by which applications should arrive is 31 January. However, we would ask that applications do not arrive before November.

Of course we cannot guarantee success and, even if a project appeals to the Trustees, the BBC reserves the right of veto as the collections are made in the environs of a BBC concert venue.

While our Hon Secretary will try to send a reminder to any charities that have expressed an interest, we must stress that the onus is on the charities to submit their applications in time.

We hope this helps.
