Pemberton seeks co-operation to achieve renovation goal

The Pemberton Old Wigan Band organisation is seeking help from Co-op members to help them redevelop their rehearsal headquarters.

  Pemberton is enjoying a wonderful period of success — including winning the 2017 First Section National title

Pemberton Old Wigan Band is looking for community support as they seek to raise funds towards the renovation of their new rehearsal facilities.

They were chosen as one of the local causes for the Co-op Community Fund and now require the support of Co-op Members to achieve their fundraising goal.

Three bands

Pemberton currently supports three bands at their Mount Zion Church base and has already begun refurbishments which will transform the building into a rehearsal facility, concert venue and community event space.

The band has already been successful in initial structural renovations and is now seeking funding to fully equip a modern multipurpose venue.

With 1% of the money spent in stores by any Co-op members who nominate Pemberton Bands going towards their cause, the band hope the Co-op Community Fund can take them closer to their target.

Exciting time

A spokesperson told 4BR: "This is a very exciting time for the band. We've already made great strides with the renovation and are looking forward to seeing the final results.

We hope to be able to hold our own sustainable concert series here and allow other local groups to use the facilities, all of which will create a real buzz around the place."
