Easingwold volunteers raise £1,500 for cancer research with brass band concert ...

Saturday 6th April, 2024

A group of volunteers in Easingwold have raised more than £1,500 to help fund world-leading cancer research by organising a ‘Beat the January Blues’ evening.

The Galtres Volunteer Group hosted the Shepherd Group Concert Brass Band in support of Yorkshire Cancer Research.

“Not only did the event raise a great amount of money for Yorkshire Cancer Research, but I felt we all came away thoroughly entertained and completely uplifted,” said Wendy Stirke, the chair of the volunteer group. “The volunteer group is extremely grateful to the very talented Shepherd Group Concert Brass Band.”

The group welcomed 150 guests to the event, which included a raffle and a talk about the history of Yorkshire Cancer Research’s impact in the region given by charity representative Andy Wilson.
