In light of recent posts focusing on the negatives of our movement, hows about some good news? Who's got a goodwill story related to their band/organisation that they want to tell? Its about time we remember why we do this, not to moan or backbite, but to better ourselves, meet different people, experience different things and, dare I say it, do some good? My band on Friday is doing a charity gig, for a local charity called Bealeys at Radcliffe Civic Hall. All proceeds from this are going to the funds of the charity. The band isn't taking a penny. Thirty bandsmen, helpers and backstage staff (not to mention the MD!) turning out on a Friday night for nowt to help out local people more needy than ourselves. Isn't that what makes banding great?
