    It's a very worthy cause and a massive effort from them, they've been in training for months. Best of luck to all of them.

    They finished in 6 hours 58 minutes taking a Guiness World Record. Outstanding effort and over £30000 raised for the charity Sense. :clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:

    Donated - have you put this on 4BR?
    I haven't seen it...
    Popping a couple of photos on there with a link to your donations page might be in order?

    Well done :-D

    Agreed, a tremendous effort from all concerned. Good on em. I know a few of the members from the bands around huddersfield, so was well pleased to hear they got the record.

    By the way, when you said:

    Just guessing, from your user ID, but he wouldn't happen to be called Tom, and presently occupying a chair on the cornet bench at Wakey Met would he?

    If so, you can rest assured we've already given him a lot of sponsorship!

    People can donate here and keep an eye on the total raised. Donations are still being added to the final total. Any support would be very welcome.
