The band played carols for shoppers at both Tesco’s at Stratford & Waitrose at Evesham during the Christmas period. We would like to thank all the customers of those stores that put money in our collection buckets & the management of the stores for being so welcoming.
Later this year should see our band revert to wearing new red uniforms for engagements plus new black shell jackets for walking out & playing at outside engagements. All monies collected during our carol playing will go towards the purchase of these garments.
The band also had two helpers at Waitrose in Evesham. Mike and Mary Nielsen were our collectors & their efforts were gratefully appreciated. Mike resplendent in his kilt with his festive top hat & Mary decked out in tinsel really enhanced the atmosphere & we’re sure encouraged the customers to contribute.
