We would like to thank all those listed below, as well as those who wish to remain anonymous, who have generously supported the RCM between 1 January and 31 December 2022.

We would also like to thank members of the RCM Legacy Ensemble who have so thoughtfully pledged a gift to the RCM in their Will.
