Brass Bands England's #SaveOurBrassBands campaign has got off to a great start with a number of bands already gaining much needed help from the link to the Crowdfunder.co.uk fundraising platform.
Free of charge
Hosted free of charge by Crowdfunder.co.uk the aim is to help bands raise money in their communities under the umbrella of the wider high profile national campaign.
The initiative is a proactive response initiated by Brass Bands England to the ongoing restrictions and subsequent financial challenges faced by bands at the current time and aims to follow the success of initiatives such as #SaveOurVenues and #SaveOurTheatres
Open to all bands
BBE's CEO, Kenny Crookston stated: "Save Our Brass Bands is open to all bands in the UK. They will have access to the online platform free of all charges for the duration of the campaign, as well as some brilliant resources provided by Crowdfunder to help them maximise the return on their efforts.
The real benefits will be seen when as many bands as possible get involved and we can help to raise the profile of the existential issues facing banding at the current time."
