Journal Entry: Wed Apr 16, 2014, 11:44 AM
As many of you know, I play percussion in a local community brass band. We recently made history when we competed in the Regional Championships and won our section -- then later on in the day, our Intermediate band (which is mainly made up of young players and people returning to playing after a long break) competed and won their section too. This is a unique achievement in the history of banding and we're really excited by it. 

Winning the Regionals means we have been invited down to Cheltenham, in England, to play at the Nationals in September. The Senior band are also competing a the European Championships in May this year, which is a huge accolade for us. 

Attending the Nationals is going to cost in excess of £9000, and therefore it's a mammoth fundraising task for us - but we are determined to do it. I've set up a fundraising page for the band for anyone who wants to support us reaching such a prestigious event. If you want to be part of such a unique event in the history of banding in the UK, please show support. Every little bit helps!

You can donate here - www.gofundme.com/tullisrussell…

Thank you :heart:
Fiona

I can post a poll.  I only have $3 to my name, which probably wouldn't help :P.
