After a fantastic summer of varied concerts and performances, fun events and personal goals, Ibstock Brick Brass have managed to hit their target for Nationals fundraising.
Members of the band enjoyed a delicious Thai green curry at our very successful Dine and Donate event sponsored by local pub The Kings Arms in Coleorton. It was fantastic social evening that raised over £200.
Two of our members also ran a 5k marathon with all sponsorship money going towards out cause. They did brilliantly – especially considering it was a scorching hot day!
In addition to this the band held a party evening, with Soprano player Simon Wilkins entertaining a great crowd with a Robbie Williams tribute act. Included in the evening were a live prize auction which included dinner deals and even a free MOT, as well as a brilliant raffle and a few games of bingo! A fantastic evening was had by all, everyone loved the entertainment and we managed to raise an amazing £640 for our Nationals journey.
Coupled with some exceptionally hard work by the band and a very generous donation from our sponsors, Ibstock Brick Brass are thrilled to be going to Nationals and are hoping that the hard work both with fundraising and commitment to the test piece and rehearsals will gain us a great result on the day.
