  You can help a great charity cause with your carol playing expertise

Scottish bandsman Brian Keachie is hoping to help raise thousands of pounds for the 'Dreams Come True' Charity this year by asking for a little bit of proactive festive help from the brass band community.

Amazing work

'Dreams Come True' help give children, who have an incurable illness or are in palliative care, a dream of their choice, and over the year's Brian has helped raise over £10,000 towards their amazing work.

Brian's next challenge personal challenge will be to run the Virgin Money London Marathon, but this year he hopes to persuade players to perform a Christmas Carol on Facebook of their choice and pledge £1.00 to Dreams Come True through his Virgin Money Giving Page.

All you have to do is record a performance of a carol of your own choice and post it onto Facebook with a pledge for £1.00 to the charity4BR

Give it a go

If you can help — and can come up with a fun carol that nobody else may have thought of in the process, go to:
