Christmas Collection

This year it was decided that 75% of all funds raised over the Christmas period (this includes the proceeds from the Christmas concert, carolling and other Christmas events) would be donated to three local charities.

As a result of the band's hard work, and the generosity of the public, we managed to raise £2,400 carolling, with our final total pot coming to £3,320.

St Elizabeth Hospice, Suffolk School for Parents and The Restricted Growth Association will each receive a cheque for £830.

Martlesham Brass Christmas Party

After two failed attempts at organising the party due to the snow we have asked Ali the Magician to attend the summer fayre to entertain us then, hopefully she won't be snowed off in June!
