Exmouth Town Concert Band are celebrating another successful year of fundraising after handing South West MS Centre a cheque for £600 at a recent rehearsal.
The Centre benefited from the band’s charitable efforts throughout 2018 and collected the proceeds of programme sales and retiring collections at the band’s concerts in Spring and at Christmas.
Tracey Skinner, Fundraising Manager for The South West MS Centre, said “the band’s donation means so much to us all and will make such a difference to the lives of the people we see at our Centre in Exeter dealing with the daily challenges of living with a neurological condition.”
Jackson Hammond, Publicity Officer for Exmouth Town Concert Band, commented on the band’s ongoing charity commitment saying, “Our Charity of the Year scheme provides an amazing opportunity for us in the band and our fabulous supporters to give something back to our community. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Tracey and the team from The South West MS Centre over the past twelve months and we are delighted to hear that the funds we have raised will be put to such good use.”
The band’s Charity of the Year for 2019 is the Exmouth Gateway Club, a local charity providing social evenings, outings and holidays for adults with learning difficulties. The club, who are celebrating their 30th year of providing their much appreciated service, are working closely with the band to arrange a number of special collaborative events throughout the year.
