Friends of Aldbourne Band
Friends of Aldbourne Band was formed in 2009 to give fans and enthusiasts of the Band a way of expressing their support in financial and practical ways.
The Friends have been granted full registered charity status by the Charities Commission and are Registered Charity No. 1144039.
In its short time the group have established a firm membership of Band supporters, as well as publishing a number of well received editions of a newsletter keeping everyone informed of current and future Band events. They ran a highly successful “Proms on the Green” event last summer and have assisted with running several important concerts.
Groups of members travelled with the Band to their recent contest successes including a large group to cheer them on at their triumph at the National Finals in Cheltenham in September 2011.
In addition, they have undertaken fundraising to support the running costs of the Band and to invest in new assets, activities and events whilst also supporting the work of the Band, to extend the musical education/training of members and potential members.
Membership of the Friends is open to anybody who is an enthusiast for the Band and its music and is interested in furthering the objectives of the Friends.
