Bilton Silver Band will compete in the National Finals in Cheltenham next month, following their success in the regional contest in March.
Earlier this summer the training band, made up of people of all ages, held a sponsored ‘Hop, Skip and Jump’ fundraising event, in which younger training members participated. Competitors took part in various sporting activities, including an egg and spoon race and a relay.
The event raised £702, which representatives presented to the Bilton Silver Band to help them on their way to achieving the £1,700 needed to cover entry fees, conductor fees and transport for the finals.
The training band welcome any aspiring new musicians.
