    Brass Band Aid has teamed up with CF Sports to offer an on-line shop for band clothing, with every purchase making a donation to BBA. This is an exciting opportunity to raise the Donations to World Vision from the Brass Band Movement to a much higher level through the power of the Internet. Most purchases generate a £2 donation to BBA .

    To view a working shop visit

    The CF Sports e-commerce site is used by over 200 Sport Clubs, each having a private Club Shop that automatically opens when Members login to their accounts. The same system will be used for Brass Bands. There are plenty of controls and clothing with your Band logo / name can be restricted to a private shop or made available for all. Each Band Secretary can have a login to a control panel to see member activity, purchases and donations generated to Brass Band Aid.

    Looking forward there are many benefits for Bands having their own on-line shops.

    - No cost & easy to administer
    - Supply Band clothing without holding stock
    - Raise funds for Brass Band Aid
    - No minimum order size
    - No cash collection as members pay direct on line
    - CF Sports Brand discounts through Band shop
    - improved Band image & awareness
    - help attract sponsors (CF Sports invoice your sponsors directly for clothing with corporate logos)
    - Expanded range of casual and uniform Band clothing

    All that is required with the first order is a usable copy of the Band Logo that will be digitized, at no cost to the Band, for the embroidery machines. CF Sports will re-design or create a new logo if required, they have offered this service to Sport Clubs for many years.

    It takes about a week to produce the first sample of your logo. However, if you not not need a logo clothing can be produced immediately.

    One simple way to get the project started is to order a set of 20 BBA / Your Band Logo Beanie Hats with Free Postage and logo development, with the Christmas carolling season coming soon you will need them. However, your first order can be for any item in any quantity.

    On-line security is always a concern of the public regarding e-commerce. The important parts of the e-commerce shop have a GeoTrust SSL certificate.
    Serial Number:737B1EF9D6D8CA4C5B69B1A06387D8EB
    Credit Card Payment is handled by Protx – a company owned by SAGE plc and at no point does CF Sports have your credit card details.

    I am the NJR Partner responsible for the design of the and Brass Banding is my main none work activity. If you have any questions I can be contacted by e-mail or tel : 0191 4194483

    Regular updates will be posted about the Donations made to BBA here and on
