Our fundraising for Cheltenham is ongoing – so far we have raised nearly £400 via the Just Giving page – thank you to everyone who has donated! (Our Just Giving page here)



The road to Cheltenham starts here!

Following the success in Huddersfield last weekend, we now turn our attentions to the National Finals in Cheltenham this coming September. We as a band are not sponsored, so the costs in preparing & getting there rest entirely on our shoulders.

Over the coming months we’ll be putting some fund raising events together – more details to come soon!

In the meantime, if anyone would like to donate (no matter how small) then please see our just giving page:
