Exmouth Town Concert Band performed a series of great Chrtistmas concerts throughout December to raise money for charity.
Exmouth Town Concert Band held their Christmas Concerts this year at the Exmouth Pavilion to raise money for music therapy at the Honeylands Childrens Centre, one of the bands sponsored charities. The concerts will also raise funds for the running costs of the band. This event was also an opportunity to thank one of their sponsors Slightly Different who built and have sponsored their website over the years.
Slightly Differents Board Director, Mervyn Spencer, was guest of honour, along with the Mayor of Exmouth Darryl Nicholas.
Mervyn Spencer says that it was a magical evening. It was really exciting to see Slightly Differents sponsorship working in communities and helping to raise money for music therapy for disabled children.
Sarah Cooper of Exmouth Town Band says thatEvery year we hold four fundraising concerts selecting local charities this Christmas we are delighted to support Honeylands. We also wanted to thank Slightly Different whose support has been invaluable over the years.
"We are a self-funding organisation as our entire membership give up their time to play voluntarily so Slightly Differents support has really made a difference. Everyone really needs a good website and our website is essential for us to let people know what events are coming up. We wanted to show our thanks by inviting Slightly Different to join us and show what we can do.
