Town band’s charity donation
ROYSTON Town Band made a donation of funds raised over Christmas to a local charity last week.
The Frank Letts Blind Fellowship of Royston received �600 from the band on January 19, who collected the money through carol playing and concerts.
Secretary of the Fellowship Bridget Matthews said: “We would like to thank the members of Royston Town Band for this marvellous donation which will mean so much for our organisation.
“We have members from a wide area round Royston and most of our costs are incurred when transporting them to our meetings, held at the Heath Sports Centre, and the �600 will go a long way towards funding this.”
Band members were delighted they were able to make the donation, considering the low numbers at Christmas concerts due to the bad weather.
