    Bestwood Welfare Black Diamonds Brass Band who are based in Bestwood Village Nottingham are delighted to announce that they have been successful in their application for a grant from the Bridging the Gap Project which is administered by the Nottinghamshire Community Foundation.

    The band which has been going for over 65 years which was formerly a Coal Mining band received £9201.00 from the foundation which the band will use to help with their Instrumental Renewal Project. The main idea of the project is to replace instruments which are over 25 years old which are getting more expensive to repair and maintain on an annual basis. Receiving this grant will help the band to acheive that goal.

    The band would like to thank the Nottinghmshire Community Foundation in helping us in our project.

    "We are deilghted to be able to award this grant to Bestwood Welfare Black Diamonds, and we support them in the work they are doing in the Community. Nottinghamshire Community Foundation is all about supporting local future to find local solutions to local problems, by distributing money to people who really do and will make a difference for the future" says Zoe Kearns, Fund Development Mananger For The Foundation.
