Many of you may have seen recent articles in the national press about brass/silver bands up and down the country who, like us, have suffered from a lack of playing together due to the pandemic. We at OSMSB have not received any income from engagements during what was our Centenary Year but still have had expenditure to cover throughout 2020. We have therefore started a crowdfunding project as from 1st January, 2021 and aim to raise £2,000 to cover these costs. I would be very grateful if you could help us by donating whatever you can afford using this link:
Any contribution large or small will be hugely appreciated.
Thank you from all at OSMSB
