£100raised of £2,000 target by 4 supporters

    Weʼve raised £100 to buy a new set of uniforms for Ulverston Town Band

    Ulverston, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 22nd October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    Ulverston Town Band has been in existence for over 165 years. The earliest documented performance of the band was from the laying of the foundation stone to commence the building of Hoad Monument in 1850.

    As in 1850 the band still plays a major role in the life of Ulverston and can regularly be heard and seen performing concerts in and around the town throughout the year and supporting the various town festivals and civic occasions.

    Our current uniforms were renewed in 1996 following a successful bid to the national lottery. With changes in band members we are struggling to ensure everyone has a suitable uniform jacket.

    We have managed to raise over £4,000 from generous donations from various local groups and money we have raised ourselves through concerts and other events (including running in the Hoad marathon) but we still need another £2,000 to allow us to renew all the uniforms.
