The HD9 Community Youth Brass Band groups, part of HD9 Community Music based in the Holme Valley, are in with a chance of winning £100,000 from a grant through the Persimmon Homes.

Support

They are looking for support in their bid through the company's 'Building Futures' Initiative, after being selected as the regional finalist in the Education and Arts category.

The brass groups, run by Megan Caddy and Paul Kirk, recently found success on the Whit Friday circuit, coming away with two first prizes and a second place in the 'Best Youth Band' category.

Paul told 4BR: "This is a huge amount of money and will ensure that these community groups can keep running for many years to come.

For a brass band to win a prize like this would be brilliant for not only us, but the brass banding movement as a whole, allowing us to carry on developing youth players for the future."

If anyone could just put 30 seconds to one side each day, it would massively help us out, but more importantly, benefit the brass banding movement as a wholePaul Kirk
