Haverhill and Hadstock bands help charity concerts raise £3,000
Haverhill Silver Band and Hadstock Silver Band played their part in a concert that raised more than £3,000 for Cancer Research UK.
The two bands performed in the Festival of Brass at the West road Concert Hall in Cambridge on February 17 - an event in which no performer was paid or received any travelling expenses.
They were joined on the night by trombone quintet Bones Apart, Cambridgeshire brass quintet TUBE and celebrated euphonium virtuoso David Childs.
Bones Apart also led an afternoon workshop for ticket holders, which was attended by more than 60 players of all ages and standards, finishing with a mini concert.
The evening was organised by Hadstock Silver Band’s musical director, Lisa Jardine-Wright.
She said: “We had the most amazing evening and whilst I don’t have the final box office cheque we believe have raised more than £3,000 for CRUK.
“David Childs was phenomenal and the local performers exceeded all expectations.
“The ladies of the two bands of Hadstock and Haverhill have also decided to follow up our fund raising by entering team for the race for life.”
