    [h=1]Plusnet connect up with Grimethorpe[/h]30-Jan-2013
    The Yorkshire based phone and broaodband provider teams up with Grimethorpe Colliery Band to keep community schools programme alive.
    The Yorkshire based phone and broadband provider, Plusnet, has stepped in to give support to Grimethorpe Colliery Band to help them overcome threatening funding cuts and continue to provide their youth education programme in the local community.
    With echoes of Grimethorpe’s own ‘people’s band’ epithet, the Yorkshire based company, which terms itself as being a ‘people’s champion’ of its own, has agreed to provide financial support to the band over the next two years.

    Funds will be used to ensure the continuation of the band’s youth education scheme which will ensure 15 pupils between the ages of 8 and 11 at the Birkwood Primary School in South Yorkshire will have the opportunity to take music lessons.

    Now it may just be me, but there seem to be more than 15 in that photo !!
