The band is actively looking for companies and organisations to help support its work. The band is part of the Registered Charity 219279 - the Royal British Legion.
The band is a true non-profit organisation. All of our members turn out in all weathers to enjoy making music. As part of our mission, we will always perform for other registered charities either for free or purely covering our expenses - we have decided not to profit at the expense of charity money. Our members will sometimes drive many miles to perform. When we do charge money, all of this money is put into the band fund and is used for uniform, upkeep of instruments or for our transport costs.
The band has many different opportunities for organisations wishing to provide us with sponsorship. Ranging from help with a particular job to an annual fund to help with the operation of the band, all contributions are welcome and will be suitably recognised. The band performs every year at a variety of public events and the band would be happy to have your company associated with us. We also perform at a number of high profile events including televised events.
We are also looking for sponsors for specific events. The band has a strong friendship with the Spiellmans und Hornerkorps Springe/Deister, based in Springe, Germany. It is planned that each year one band will visit the other. This visit will include a concert and any sponsors for these events would be greatly appreciated.
We are also looking for donations to help the band travel to the United States in 2010. Any help, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated.
If you would like to discuss sponsorship opportunities, please speak to the Pipe Major who will be able to talk about the possibilities and invite you to the next committee meeting.
