~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



The Exuberant Trust opened a new, charity account with CAF Bank in June 2023, after the original charity account with NatWest was closed. Unfortunately, it was difficult to find a replacement charity account with free banking services. Therefore the Exuberant Trust now has to pay some monthly/transaction fees, but also earns interest on the account balance. These changes are reflected in the Accounts figures.


We are extremely grateful to all of our generous supporters who have made donations to the Exuberant Trust (either in person at concerts, online or in other ways), not only this year, but over the last 20 years since we launched as a charity in 2003. With the exception of a small percentage of necessary expenses, all of the funds that we receive are used to provide grants for young creative artists in Oxfordshire.

* Note about the Pavilion Loan


The Exuberant Trust received a charitable donation of £10,000 in 2008, on the condition that it was then used as a loan to the Pavilion Trust Fund towards the cost of the construction of the Pavilion at The Limes in Standlake.


One of the conditions of the loan, was that the Exuberant Trust could use the Pavilion, free of charge, for its charitable Music at The Limes events. The Pavilion is directly beneficial to the Exuberant Trust as it provides a larger audience space for concerts than the formerly used Music Room at The Limes.


In the event of any future disposal of the Pavilion, the Exuberant Trust will be entitled to either a fixed sum, or some proportion of the proceeds.
