We are delighted to announce that Rustom Patel, Lord of the Prebendal Manor of Blewbury, has made a donation to the band. This will be put towards the purchase of instruments for brass clubs at Blewbury School and Hagbourne School.
In previous years, Rustom has donated several instruments to the band and his continued support is hugely appreciated.
The world famous local landmark of Didcot Power Station which is run by RWE npower has made a generous contribution to the band which will be put towards the purchase of new instruments.
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.
