The United Co-op Yorkshire Brass Band is holding a 24-hour sponsored blowathon to help raise funds for its trip to Singapore and New Zealand to compete in the New Zealand Brass Band Championships in March 2005. Band members will be gaining sponsorship and several of us will be 'going the distance' so to speak, but we would really love it if plenty of other banders could join us. So, if you fancy joining us to have a blow, try a different instrument, try out one of your own compositions or arrangements or have a go at conducting then pleas come along. The event starts at 7pm on Friday 23 July and continues for yes - 24-hours!! It is taking place in the band's bandroom on King Street, Brighouse and we will be playing around the town on Saturday 24 July. All we ask is that anyone that comes down donates £5 to band funds. You will be made most welcome but please could you e-mail Tabby Clegg at: firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know you may be popping in. We look forward to seeing as many people as possible!
