Well the date is set for our marathon session all in the aid of charity!
Firstly thanks to Shaula (trombone) for coming up with the ludicrous idea that we should attempt to play every piece music residing in the filing cabinets. That’s over 1000 by my reckoning but I could have under estimated. So the date is set for 5th May 2017 and the plan is the play for 24 hours.
Our MD Martin recently went on a photography trip to Kolkata in India with The Hope Foundation and his suggestion is that the above event is a sponsored one to raise money for this charity which promotes the protection of children living on the streets in Kolkata, among the most underprivileged in India. Further details can be found at www.thehopefoundation.org.uk
Beware, band members will shortly be knocking on your door begging for sponsorship and if they promise to play through the ‘graveyard’ shift please give generously. Thank you.
