Huge thanks to Judy White, a Blewbury resident, for sponsoring the Blewbury Brass Band. Judy is the first Blewbury resident to sponsor the band this year.
The band has just embarked on a major campaign to raise close to £20,000, and the funds will be put towards buying 40-50 new instruments for a Brass Club at both the Blewbury and Hagbourne Primary Schools. This will enable us to teach lots of local young people to play a brass instrument, a skill that will stay with many of them for the whole of their life).
If you (or anybody you know) would like to sponsor the band, do please contact Martin Holliss (firstname.lastname@example.org; tel 07931 376501)…who started learning the trumpet when he was 7 years old (more than 40 years ago).
For now, thank you again, Judy, for your generous support…and it goes without saying that we would love to hear from LOTS of other Blewbury residents!
