Southampton Operatic Society has long supported local and national charities as part of its commitment to being involved in its local community and trying to 'put something back'. We believe strongly in supporting good causes and over the years have helped many charities including St. John Ambulance, Leukaemia Busters, the Rotary Club, the Lions Club, Wessex Cancer Trust, Wessex Heartbeat and, most particularly, Save the Children for whom we have helped raise over £30,000 since the year 2000. We support through offering cabaret entertainment at fund-raising events, allowing and encouraging retiring bucket collections at some of our productions and having discounted ticket schemes as well as helping to raise awareness and funds by singing and entertaining at charity public collections. Being a registered charity ourselves we feel it is an important part of our remit to support other worthy causes.
