Coalburn enjoy festive support

The Coalburn Band organisation kept themselves busy over the Christmas period

Coalburn
  The Coalburn Band organisation raised funds for a local mental health charity

December has been an exciting month for the Coalburn Band organisation.

The centre-piece was the first virtual Christmas Concert which featured music from the Silver, Intermediate and Bronze Bands plus their Percussion Academy. Recorded from the safety of their own homes, it featured a selection of festive favourites, as well as, the Bronze Band's programme from SBBA's recent virtual Youth Festival of Brass event.

Proceeds from the event, which so far has topped £1,200 will go to the Lanarkshire Association for Mental Health (LAMH), a local mental health charity that provides community based support services throughout the region.
