Skills for life

Funding level: Up to £1,000

Submitted by: Lighthouse Financial Advice


Due to a sucessfull period of recruitment and growth, we are looking to purchase new marching brass instruments for our growing junior marching band. We have had another influx of new members ranging from age 8 to 14 and our intention is grow membership further. We encourage children from all fields in life, and encourage any child to give it ago, excluding no -one. We do not have enough equipment to allocate adequate quality instruments to our ever growing band of young people, enabling them to perform and learn in a fun envioronment. We currently are having to borrow instruments from another band (these can be recalled at any time) thus leading to us not being able to develop our young people and possibly turn them away.
We are very active within our community playing at Rememberence day parades, carol concerts and local fetes. We also enter National competitions being active members of the British Youth Band association.

We anticipate the costs involved being approximately £1,000.00.

Seeing young people from all backgrounds learning, performing competently and with confidence to the general public is extremely rewarding. Watching them learn and grow, working as a team and most importantly having fun along the way
