Elland Silver Band is Brass Band is an independent music charity which provides people of all ages the opportunity to play brass and percussion instruments. We have over 120 playing members aged from 7 to 75 years of age, ranging from beginners to advanced level musicians. We provide our members with FREE use of an instruments, tuition, music and uniforms for a small weekly charge. We perform at a variety of local, national and european events and also regularly support community events and other charities to raise funds. Our organisation is staffed by volunteers, and all our funds are raised from fundraising, grants, concerts and donations.
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach Elland Silver Band.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
