Last Saturday (16 May) the Band performed at the Clowes Memorial Methodist Church in Hull. The Church has provided the Band with rehearsal and storage facilities for many years and this was an opportunity for us to give something back by helping to raise funds for the Church’s “Making a Visible Difference” project.
Newly appointed Lay Pastor, Matt Sheard, thanked the Band saying:
“It was a wonderful and varied programme and made all who attended the concert smile. Lots of the people who were there were bobbing and swaying along to the VE day music and listening intently to the wonderful hymn tunes. They were also tapping along to the stirring marches.
The fact that you were prepared to come and give your time for free to entertain the community was appreciated by the church. The money raised will help us to continue to make a visible difference in our community which has been a particular project the church has being working on for some time. It will also go towards helping us fund our family worker project”.
