Brass band music was at the heart of the coal mining industry. We all grew up listening to the sound of brass. Grimethorpe Colliery Band have a history which must be saved. The Coal Industry and its communities are gone, but their sprit lives on in brass band music.
As many of you know I will be the big 50 later this month. If you can, I would love my friends and family to donate to help save the Grimethorpe Colliery Band rather than cards or presents.
My Dad loved to listen to a brass band, and so do we. David and I had Grimethorpe Colliery Band music at our wedding.
Please help keep the spirt of the coal industry alive, if you can.
