Spring Charity Concert
On Sunday 15th March 2020 the band gave a charity concert at St Michael and St John’s Parish Centre in Clitheroe. Despite concerns about the current Coronavirus situation, the concert was well attended. The band performed a variety of musical items with connections from around the world.
Profits from the concert were in aid of ‘Mary’s Meals’, a charity providing children with one good meal a day in places of learning in developing countries.
As spring is a quiet time for the band the members made a decision to provide a free concert to support a locally supported charity. Conductor, John Cowking, invited applications for next years charitable concert.
