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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


During Covid-19 all live performance was forced to cease, one of the most important events to the brass band community was the annual Whit Friday Contests. Foden's Band hosted an online virtual reincarnation of the event in 2020 which was viewed by over 30,000 people globally.

We're back in 2021 with another online edition, and we would love to raise as much money as possible for the organisers of the Tameside and Saddleworth Whit Friday Contests so that, after Covid, the usual festivities can return.

You can watch the Virtual Contest at on Friday 28th May 2021 for free.

      Can’t wait for the next live Whit Marches. Well done to all at Fodens Band for their super virtual events in the meantime. :)

      Excellent contest. Loved it! And yes, we watched in SD groups while camping in Alderley Edge for our first rehearsal weekend in 18 months in the sunshine 😎
