The Aviva Community Fund voting ended last week and we got a tremendous amount of support with 803 votes in total. However, we did not meet our target of 1000. Today we have been advised that we were unsuccessful in our application and that we are not in the final round of judging.
We would like to thank all those people who voted for us and who continue to support us. As you know we are a registered charity and, without a sponsor, rely on donations, grants and income from engagements to survive.
2017 has been a very difficult year for various reasons with rehearsals at our base being severely restricted for a large part of the year. This should all be finished now so we expect that in 2018 rehearsals will be back to normal and we can confidently build up a busy giglist for next year.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.
