Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am a member of the East London Community Band (ELCB) and have been playing bari sax with them for several years now.
I don’t have a bari of my own, so I play this beaten up old beast which is great fun.
This bari came with a ‘coffin’ case, which weighs almost 10kg and was so cumbersome i couldnt easily move it on my own, so I invested in a second hand lighter moulded case. Today whilst setting up to perform, the zip broke.... I have previously looked into replacing this, but its so specialist that we’d need a suitcase company to do it and that starts at around £250.
So instead, it makes more sense to buy a new case. As bari belongs to the Charity, they cant help out, and im not financially stable enough to fund this myself, im reaching out to you, my friends to see if anyone can spare me a little to help me out.
This case is not only sturdier, it is lighter than my current one which will save exaserbating my arthritis, and it has wheels!!!
In the long run, I do need a new baritone as this one isnt repairable-but if you could help me out with a case, ill love you forever! If we surpased this target, it will stay in the ‘bari fund’ or be handed back to the band to continue growing and helping the community.
