On Saturday 25th November, we played at the Co-op in Marple at their celebration day to end their latest fundraising session. Three local charities benefited from the Co-op membership charity scheme and the 1% that they donate from total purchases made. This resulted in a staggering £3,430 that was presented to the band for our new uniforms.
The Marple Band sends a huge thank you to all our supporters who nominated us as their chosen Co-op charity. It is fantastic that a local organisation has made such a massive contribution.
Along with our sponsors, other generous donations, grants and fundraising events, we have now achieved our target and will be ordering our new uniforms very soon. Thank you all so very much, but especially to Ruth Groves for her immense contribution in coordinating and driving forward all our uniform fundraising.
