Debut for New Uniforms at Musicals Concert

The Band is delighted to now have a full set of new uniforms after a hugely successful fundraising exercise lasting over two years.

We achieved our target of £7,350, for 34 new jackets and 3 percussion waist coats, after a final push in December and following a very generous contribution of £3,430 from the Co-op through their community fund raising programme.

This is a fantastic opportunity for organisations to get funding that may not be available through the traditional grant routes. We were one of 3 nominated charities supported by the Co-op for 3 months. Over that time, for every member who used their Co-op cards, the Co-op donated 1% of purchase value to a fund. This was then allocated to the 3 chosen charities. Money raised from carrier bag sales was also shared between the charities.

Gala Performance – A Night at the Musicals

On Saturday July 23rd, we had a fabulous evening at a glittering ‘Night at the Musicals’, staged at Stockport Grammar School. The Mayor and Mayoress were in attendance.

The concert was in conjunction with Stockport grammar School to help raise much needed funds for Educaid- a pet charity of the school. We raised in excess of £1,200. The audience were wowed with the music from many well-known West End and Broadway spectaculars. A special mention went to Grace Shropshire who sang her first solo with the band and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when she sang I dreamed a dream from Les Misérables…   …the first, I’m sure, of many more to come.
