Leave a legacy

women-carrying-water
Many of our supporters over the past 30 years have left legacies to MBG and this has made a significant difference to our work. We would be immensely grateful if you would consider doing this. Of one thing you can be sure, that whatever is left to us it will be spent improving the lives of young people both here in Marlborough and in The Gambia, through their engagement with a very different culture and faith, providing them with extraordinary life enhancing opportunities and opening their eyes to a wider and richer world.

Fundraising events

garden-party

MBG organises a number of fundraising events annually, including; garden Parties, quiz nights, auctions of promises and classical concerts.

Since 2012 we have been running a series of piano recitals under the heading of "Brilliant Young Pianists in St Peter's Church" in collaboration with St Peter's Trust, and these are generously sponsored by Robert Hiscox and Hiscox Insurance. These recitals are given by young students from all over the world who already have an international career but are grateful to have the opportunity to perform in Marlborough, for a small fee, in front of a discerning audience.

For current Brilliant Young Pianists and other concerts & MBG events please visit our Events page.

If you are an enthusiastic fundraiser with a brilliant idea for raising money we want to hear from you!
