One of the highlights of the year for us – as a voluntary group – is to be able to share some of the money we raise at Christmas with other local good causes that provide essential services in Royston.
Last week we were immensely proud to be able to present a cheque for £700 to Royston Day Centre which provides a friendly atmosphere where up to 25 older less able-bodied or housebound clients can meet and socialise each day. This will directly benefit the various groups who use the centre, including Royston Community Transport, Stroke Support and Speech Therapy, and Royston Homestart.
Sharon Redrup from Royston Day Centre said that the money would be put towards projects such as outings for clients and a new sound system. A fitting purpose! Perhaps they’ll play some band music on their new sound system! (Ed: or perhaps not!)
Our thanks goes out to everyone who supported the band over Christmas; you have made a difference to not just one, but two good causes!
If you’d like to hear more from the band we’d be delighted if you would join us for our next concert at the Parish Church on the 27th May at 7.30pm.
