Long Eaton Silver Prize Band

British Red Cross


I would like to nominate the Long Eaton Silver Prize Band for their fantastic efforts helping to raise money for the British Red Cross. To date they have put on two 'Last night of the Proms' concerts to raise money for the Land Rover appeal in 2014 and the AED fund in 2015. Having raised over 2000 for the appeals, they have again offered to put on another concert in 2016.

The Band donates their services to entertain paying guests with their musical talents, as well as providing a wide variety of humour between the music, courtesy of Sharon the conductor.

I feel there should be a special mention of thanks to Fred Aram, who finds the venues for us to hold the concerts and sells a very high proportion of tickets for the concerts.

The band makes a major contribution to supporting the British Red Cross, which ensures that we reach people in crisis.

Thank you for your work in supporting the British Red Cross.
