The principal objective of the Friends of HCYWE is to assist in the musical education of students at schools and colleges in Hampshire by providing financial support to the Hampshire County Youth Wind Ensembles.

This support is only given for events, projects and expenses which are not normally funded by Hampshire County Council

Friends of Hampshire County Youth Wind Ensembles have set up a page on the Easy Fundraising web site. Easy Fundraising is a way to make money for The Friends when making purchases via a wide range of high street retailers. All monies generated are used to support the activities of the ensembles and there is also an option to gift aid purchases but first of all you will heed to register to be able to access the site: go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk click on "Support a Good Cause" Enter "friends of hampshire" then click on find We're the second one down

Uniform for HYTWE and HPE is a black HCYWEs polo shirt. To purchase one of these, please email Annie@swift-uk.com and ask for the black polo shirt with HCYWE logo.

Blue HCYWE uniform shirts are managed by the Friends, who will be in touch with members at the beginning of each academic year.
