The band have received a donation from the Music Mates charity. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone associated with Music Mates for their generous donation, which will certainly help support our Junior Band. The charity have issued the following statement:

"Following the closure of the Music Mates charity, the committee agreed to donate the remaining funds of £205 to Longridge Band. Specifically, to support the continued development and success of the Junior Band. This donation reflects the purpose of Music Mates, which was set up to help children, young people and families build relationships, unlock their creativity and achieve their potential through music. As a long established, very successful and locally rooted champion of music in the community, we are delighted to make this donation to Longridge Band."
