Story

Until recently The Armthorpe Elmfield Band was affliated to the Doncaster Youth Service, who generously supported us by providing premises to practice in and to store the large amount of equipment it takes to run a traditional brass band. Unfortunately due to cut-backs and re-purposing of premises, we now find ourselves without a home. Over the past year we have survived by the charity of many people providing temporary rooms, but to survive the band needs to bring all its equipment back under one roof and create a regular practice facility. As we have been unable to find a new home we have started on the task of building our own. This is going to take a lot of commitment, work and of course funding.

So far we have managed to obtain a site in our home village and recently obtained planning permission to build a modest practice room and office, which we hope to use ourselves and potentially share with other community musical arts groups. Now we need to raise a substantial amount to move towards the building phase.

    Many thanks to those who have donated so far, not just via this page but directly to us by cash and cheque ( which saves us the fees charged by online processing ) We are now 10% of the way to our first target, but there is still a long way to go. Please be generous if you can, and don't forget to share this page so as to reach others that may want to help the band.
