In 2019 the Drum Corp decided to take on a project to raise money to improve the Bands percussion section and drums. The project was led by Junior Committee member, Emily Cooper, and she was helped along the way by her fellow members of the Drum Corp. She spent many hours writing letters and emails asking for donations and searching out potential grant opportunities. The Band would like to say a very big THANK YOU to the following groups, people and organisations for supporting the project and making a donation.
Great Torrington Cavaliers £250
County Cllr Andrew Saywell £300
District Cllr Chris Bright £250
District Cllr Cheryl Cottle-Hunkin £250
Devon County Councils “Making the Connection” Grant £300
Cooper families fundraising efforts £230
Charman family donation £50
Christmas Bingo £167
We were also delighted to secure an award of £1038 from Postcode Community Trust, a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
On behalf of the Band we would like to say a very big Thank You to everyone that provided funding in one way or another and Well Done to all the junior members who worked hard to support the project
