Perthshire Brass, along with our own Youth Band and guests Blairgowrie Lyric Choir and Alyth & District Pipe Band, are presentng a Charity Concert on Sunday 29 April in Alyth Town Hall at 7pm. Admission is free - but there will be ample opportunities throughout the evening to donate to the chosen charity, Maggie's Cancer Care centres. Band members George and Clair Annan, Jim Annan, Lindsay Kettles and Sara Beaton are taking part in the Maggie's Cancer Care "Mega Bike and Hike" on 5 May - as the name suggests, a sponsored bike ride followed immediately by a hike, about 50km in all, and the concert proceeds will add to the sum that they and their team mates have raised in sponsorship and through other fundraising efforts. I understand that this currently stands at around £3500. Any Scottish based bandsfolk free on Sunday - come up to sunny Alyth (near Blairgowrie for those who don't know) , you'll be very welcome for a great night out.
