We’re delighted to announce that Dave Smith Photography have made a Music Sponsorship, to enable us to buy a new piece of music.
An accomplished local photographer (see http://www.davidsmithphotography.com), Dave Smith’s images are used in brochures, catalogues, magazines, newspapers, supplements, books, CD covers, exhibitions, advertising, websites and editorials. He is an architectural, commercial and industrial photographer, with work in Homes and Gardens, Vogue, The Sun, The Guardian and Country Life (to mention just a handful).
As a Music Sponsor, Dave will be invited to attend the first public performance of the piece when it has been fully rehearsed!
Sainsbury’s have given a £20 voucher to go towards materials, refreshments for players or even a raffle prize.
The band again have received support from the local business community. Calnan Brothers, Didcot’s rather forward thinking local butchers has made a generous donation to the bands funds to enable us to continue to develop our new Leaner band and proceed with this year’s MasterClass.
Visit Calnan Brothers at their Didcot shop at 5 Hagbourne Road, Didcot, Oxford OX11 8DP or visit their impressive new website www.calnanbrothers.co.uk for how to videos, recipes and online ordering for nation wide temperature controlled delivery. The meat is great (they are a proper butcher who will prepare meat to order) but at least one band member also visits their shop for the cheeses on their Deli counter.
We’re taking a break next week (Wed. July 25th. 2012), but there will be a main band practice as usual on 1st Aug.
Time for some private practice.
The band have just received a kind donation of £150 from a local business who wish to remain anonymous. The sponsorship will be used to fund tuition for our learners to enable us to provide some one on one lessons alongside the main band training.
Donations of this kind make a huge difference to the modest income of the band and enable us to both expand our repertoire and the number of performance at which we can play out.
