Please Help Support Us
The Marple Band doesn’t have a sponsor that provides regular corporate funding. As such we rely solely on money earned from our performances, fundraising events and kind contributions from friends and supporters of the band.
If you would like to help support the band the we’d love to see you at our many concerts and events in Marple and surrounding area. But you can also support the band in other ways.
Easyfundraising is a great way of making regular donations to The Marple Band, without it costing you a penny, every time you shop online. Please visit our easyfundraising page for more details and to start donating.
What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when customers shop through the URL smile.amazon.co.uk, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to the charitable organisations selected by customers. So, by shopping through Amazon Smile, you can donate vital funds to the charity – The Brass Bands of Marple. Thank you.
A vital part of our support is provided by our Supporters Club (previously Vice Presidents’). These are valued supporters who generously make regular contributions to the band throughout the year. All are put to excellent use, supporting all aspects of the band, including new music, maintenance of instruments and assisting with general running costs. Our Spring and Autumn concerts are dedicated to our Supporters who are invited to these April and October events, plus receiving free raffle tickets for these concerts and our Christmas Concert. If you’d like to become a member or our Supporters Club, please contact us using the ’email’ button below…

Donations & Sponsors
We recently raised funds for new band uniforms, which cost over £6,000. Much was kindly donated by local businesses and individuals making one-off donations to sponsor individual band jackets. The band always requires new instruments, which are extremely expensive so, If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, or would like to make a donation, please contact us using the button below. All donations will be gratefully received and put to good use. Thank you.
Thank you to local businesses and individuals who have made kind donations, monetary or in the form of gifts and raffle prizes, to help the band raise funds. All are greatly appreciated.
