Crowdfunder and Brass Bands England have teamed up to launch #BrassBandsAtChristmas, an initiative to help bands like Kippax continue to make music in your local community.
Christmas is the time of year most amateur brass bands raise the majority of their funds to go towards running costs for the band for the following year.
Due to Covid19 restrictions, Kippax are only able to play one indoor formal Christmas concert this year - with a reduced capacity.
We are out every weekend in December, playing Christmas carols and entertaining you, the public - and you continue to donate generously to show your appreciation for our efforts, despite your own hardship. However, we know that overall, next year will be financially tougher for the band too.
We’re therefore aiming this Christmas to raise £2000, to help maintain our supply of instruments, heat our bandroom in winter, and replace old and worn uniforms for our new and returning players.
