On 22nd September the annual awards ceremony for the Redruth Charity Trust took place, this is a grant scheme aimed at supporting people in Redruth and District who provide social/leisure activities or services for the community. The Lanner and District Silver Band were in attendance to provide entertainment for the various representatives from local organisations all eagerly waiting to hear what their respective organisations had been awarded. Amongst these were two young members of the Lanner Brass Academy, Siana and Jacob. (picture: Siana and Jacob collecting the cheque from the Chairman of the Redruth Charity Trust).
