Co-op Donation leaves band on a high note!
The Band is delighted to announce that we are the latest beneficiary of Fylde Road Co-op Food store’s Community Fund. The fund set up by the local supermarket provides a ‘periodic pot of cash’ to a local organisation or group. Band Chairman Dave Rimmer, receiving the news by email, thanked the Co-op for their generosity and support “It is most unexpected and refreshing to see large companies supporting their local community. The timing is excellent as we have recently had a significant cost in buying additional uniforms and still need to purchase additional music to extend our repertoire”.
Members of the band were invited along to the store where shop manager Robbie Johnson presenting a check for £500 said “The Marshside Brass Band is popular with both our customers and members of staff and we are pleased to be able to help keep the tradition of the village brass band alive.”
Marshside Brass Band would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to Robbie, Pamela and all the staff at the Fylde Road store for thinking of us, It is wonderful to see a large company so proactively supporting the local community. All money raised for the band goes into keeping the organisation going so we can hand it on to yet another generation Brass Band enthusiasts.
