Brewin Dolphin renews sponsorship.
MANAGEMENT and financial planning firm Brewin Dolphin has announced that it will be renewing its sponsorship of the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama (RWCMD) for a third year.
The Wales office of Brewin Dolphin, based in Cardiff, will be the lead sponsor of the College's Performance Programme for the 2015-16 academic year.
The sponsorship will enable the College to continue to provide a varied, high quality programme of performances and events, a programme which now attracts audiences of around 70,000 annually since the creation of its new facilities five years ago.
Brewin Dolphin will also be the headline sponsor of the College's President's Dinner, an annual event to which key donors, ambassadors and alumni are invited and entertained by some of the College's most exceptional students.
RWCMD is also a client of the charity and institutional team at Brewin Dolphin as the company manage the College's endowment fund.
The team oversees more than PS130m on behalf of charities, pension funds and institutions in Wales including the National Eisteddfod of Wales, WNO, Tenovus, St John Cymru Wales and Christ College Brecon.
Hilary Boulding, principal of the college, said: "We are thrilled that Brewin Dolphin has renewed its support of the college for a third year. This support is invaluable for maintaining and growing a rich programme of performances that we can share with Cardiff audiences and in providing our students with the chance to work with many great artists.
"We have a great partnership with Brewin Dolphin who manage our endowment fund. We have very ambitious plans to grow the endowment over the next five to 10 years so that we can fund many more scholarships and ensure that the most talented students can study here regardless of their financial background."
As part of the partnership the firm once again held its Christmas drinks party at the college to celebrate a successful year with its clients and the renewal of the college sponsorship.
Brewin Dolphin's clients were treated to a performance given by RWCMD students studying on the MA Musical Theatre course.
David Myrddin-Evans said: "It has been a great year for Brewin Dolphin and we were thrilled to be able to celebrate the festive season at the College. I know it's something that our clients always enjoy.
"I love coming to the college to watch the students so I am delighted that we are able to give support to Wales' national conservatoire for a further year and enable the public to enjoy its wonderful programme."
