Self Funding Organisation
As an organisation we have significant annual running costs. At present we are a self-funding group and this can prove to be a very costly process. We are very grateful that we have been awarded charitable status and this helps us to make the most of every pound we are able to raise.
In order for the band to continue competing at the highest level and to continue teaching as many children from the local community as we can, we are continually in search of new and exciting fundraising or partnership opportunities. We currently have a number of fundraising events planned which are detailed below. We are registered with ‘Virgin Money Giving’ and would be grateful for any donations towards the events we are undertaking.
Similarly we are always eager to hear from anyone or any company who may be interested in pursuing a sponsorship opportunity. This can be as big or as small as you would like, from sponsoring a bus to a contest to a multi-year, whole organisation sponsorship. If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact the band secretary.
