Every year, the Blewbury Players hold a Music Quiz in the Blewbury Village Hall (run by Peter Willison and Jeff Dawson), with proceeds donated to a charity that helps young people. Enormously generously, it was decided that half of the funds generated should be donated to the Blewbury Brass Band to buy cornets for the Blewbury School brass group.
A cheque for £827.74 was received by Martin Holliss in this morning’s post, enabling us to buy 3½ more cornets.
These instruments will be used over many years to launch several local children into a lifetime of playing music.
We now have 11½ cornets available and, while our target for the Blewbury School brass group is 20-30, this makes it almost possible to start a small group…prior, we hope, to morphing into a full size group.
HUGE thanks again to the Blewbury Players – true community spirit in action!
If you would like to make a donation to the band (eg to buy one cornet @ a cost of £250 each), please contact Martin Holliss, our treasurer (email@example.com / 07931 376501).
