Following the band’s successful weekend at the area contest in Stevenage where we walked away as ‘First Section Champions’, we have been invited to the National Finals which take place in Cheltenham this September.

As you can imagine, transporting a band of 28+ players plus instruments and baggage, 185 miles across the country for a weekend is a pricey task.

So here we look to you. We are calling upon our supporters, our fans and our friends to help us with a little fund raising to make the journey to the Nationals a little easier.

The band will be holding various fundraising events in the months leading up to the Nationals (they’re a talented bunch and are planning all sorts including raffles, sponsored playing, sponsored park runs, an auction for a date with the most handsome player, maybe a charity calendar…. scratch the last two) but if you can spare us a little change, we’d be incredibly grateful.

Your support will enable the players to get to Cheltenham safely, stay near the venue reducing stress on contest day and secure us a suitable rehearsal venue.
