The TCTC Group has expanded its community support of music making to include wind band players as well as brass.

  The TCTC Group Band already gains support from the company

Following the continued success of the sponsorship link of the Championship Section TCTC Group Band, the leading contract research company based in the North West will now support Youth Wind Bands based in Cheshire.

The TCTC Group Wind Bands will give young brass, woodwind and percussion players the opportunity of playing together as an ensemble at five different musical levels, including a Starter Group; Beginner Band; Junior Band; Youth Band and Community Band.

Community support

The progressive approach offers ideal ensembles for children who have just started playing and know just a few notes, all the way to adults with a musical platform where age is not restricted.

Kerri Leeming, founder of TCTC told 4BR: "TCTC have always supported community groups which involve our employees and their families. The TCTC Group Wind Bands offer children the opportunity to develop musical skills which they may not otherwise be able to access.

We are extremely proud to add the group to our community sponsorship portfolio and thanks to this new arrangement the bands have a secure and positive future. We look forward to many years of high-quality and entertaining music-making to come."

Tremendous boost

In response, Jackie Davies, the Manager of the Wind Band organisation said: "The support of a business that has such a strong community ethos is a tremendous boost. TCTC Groups support will provide a stable future for our music making whilst assist us to provide new youngsters with a new musical experience.

The Wind bands are delighted to be associated with TCTC Group which puts us back under the same Sponsor as TCTC Group Band with who we remain very close."
