FUNDRAISING & SUPPORTING THE BAND
We run classes for learners all year round and have around 40 players at any one time including the main band and learners. We provide uniforms, instruments, music and tuition. Our subscription fees remain purposely low to make the band accessible to all. This means that we have to fund ourselves from engagement fees and ticket sales throughout the year.
The band also accepts donations and grants from the public and local organisations who may wish to support the band. Some of our supporters may choose to leave us a legacy donation in their will or a donation from monies collected at a funeral service.
If you would like to get involved by making a contribution to the band or would like more information on how you could support the band then please speak to Fred Harris on 07830 171633. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
We would like to express our upmost thanks and gratitude to the Northamptonshire Community Foundation and the Margaret Griffen Community Fund Grants for the £3000 grant for our new band trailer to assist with the transportation of our equipment (photo above).
