Eyes down for a line and get those dabbers ready as Lions Youth Brass Band holds a fundraising bingo night to help raise money towards the European Youth Brass Band Championships next year.

A fantastic second place finish in April’s National Youth Brass Band Championships of Great Britain meant the young players secured their place in Europe’s top competition next year.

But in order to compete in the contest the organisation is having to raise around £20,000 to travel to Montreux in Switzerland with just under 40 young players ranging from 14 to 19.

It is an amazing opportunity for the Sandbach-based band but means a lot of fundraising will have to take place between now and next May.

The fundraising campaign begins with a bingo night at Haslington Cricket Club on Friday, July 13 – where the successful race night was held earlier in the year.

So come down, bring your friends, and help the band get to Switzerland so they can make the most of this amazing opportunity. Remember to click attending on the Facebook event.

Where: Haslington Cricket Club, Clay Lane, CW1 5SE – parking on site

When: Friday, July 13, starting 7.30pm.
