Friends of Lincolnshire Schools Orchestras (FLINSO) has been working behind the scenes to support youth music in Lincolnshire for many years.

FLINSO has provided practical support to the groups in a number of ways, from ticket and raffle selling at Tuesday Band concerts, to providing chaperones for young people at Jazz Vehicle.

As a Registered Charity, they have also been able to support the groups financially.

They are looking for new trustees to join us to support the Music Service in the exciting future beyond coronavirus and its restrictions.

If you have a passion for youth music in Lincolnshire and would be willing and able to act as a trustee they would love to hear from you. You would be particularly welcome if you have previous experience as a trustee or legal or financial skills. As well as enthusiasm to support this essential aspect of life for our children and young people, you will need time to meet (virtually) 4-6 times per year.

Historically the trustees were committee members drawn from parents of the participants in the group. We may be able to call on this group in future, especially for practical support.

If you would like to discuss the role in more detail please do not hesitate to contact Melanie Weatherley MBE on: 07816 845522 or via
