Get Involved/Donate

We are seeking to recruit around 120 musicians from each city, Oxford and Cambridge. To achieve this we need help! If you are not taking part as a musician (or even if you are), there are a number of ways to get involved in the Note Race.


You can donate or sponsor a musician. Go to the Oxford or Cambridge MyDonate team page and choose who to sponsor, or simply make a donation.

Help Spread the Word

Please help us spread the word in whatever ways you can. Please join and get others to join our Oxford and Cambridge Note Race Facebook Group and follow us on Twitter @gradeoneathon.

Help Get Sponsorship

Your company can sponsor the Cambridge team or the Oxford team (or both!) or you may know of a company or of people who might offer us sponsorship. All the organisers are volunteers but we need to cover the costs of venue hire and we would welcome and of course acknowledge sponsorship that helps us to do this and supports our charities. Please contact us at Team Oxford or Team Cambridge to discuss sponsorship and programme advertising opportunities.

Help Get volunteers

There is plenty to be done to make the Grade-1-athon a wonderful success and we would welcome help in organising, managing and promoting the event. If you would like to volunteer, or know anyone who might like to help with these things and/or on the lesson day July 9, or the exam and concert day September 10, please contact Team Oxford or Team Cambridge.
