Behind almost every organisation there will be a group of willing volunteers working away to ensure the organisation will run smoothly.
For Avonbank Brass Band we have a FABBulous organisation called FABB (Friends of Avonbank Brass Band). These unsung heroes & heroines work tirelessly to organise events and raise money for the band.
At every concert they are there, selling tickets, manning the door, selling raffle tickets and helping in every way possible. They hold a stall at the Christmas Fayre in Evesham to raise money. But the biggest function FABB perform is to run the 100 Club for the band.
The 100 Club has as the name implies 100 numbers.
Members chose a number and pay £1 per week.
Each month, prizes of £50, £20 and £10 are awarded, with a quarterly bonus of £150
FABB can be contacted via Eric Green on 01386-47106.
FABB also publish a news paper for the band informing every one of the bands activities, results and future concerts. In recent times this cash had enabled the band to redecorate the band room, purchase some new uniforms whilst cleaning the existing stock.
The band members really cannot thank this group of people enough for their work. Avonbank is a great band to play in, but the work of FABB makes everything so much easier.
From the Band to FABB ………THANKYOU!!!!!!!
