Support Your RPO: Leave a Legacy

Leave a Legacy

Empower the RPO to enhance its legacy, by leaving one of your own.

We are truly grateful to our supporters who leave a gift to the RPO in their Will. This helps to ensure that the happiness brought to them by the RPO during their lifetime is accessible to future generations. As you may be aware, Arts Council funding and ticket sales only cover part of our costs associated with producing the RPO’s outstanding performance and community projects. Thus, a legacy gift, however large or small, really makes a tangible difference to us.
