209 West Bridgford Squadron in Nottingham needed our help with instruments, read on to see what a difference we have already made (in their words):
“This grant has enabled us to, for the first time, acquire drums and bugles and allowed the squadron to participate in the annual Wing music competition and begin to develop musical competence across squadron membership.
The squadron draws from a wide cross section including areas of deprivation, so we are providing access to musical experience for young people who would otherwise not be having any access at all.
I am thrilled to share that as a result of our first full participation in the Wing Music day (open to 28 squadrons), 209 came away in second place overall having come FIRST in the Fanfare competition, FIRST in the solo Bugle Competition and FIRST in the Ensemble Competition!!!”
