Halifax Boys’ and Girls’ Brigade Band has received £2,000 from The Co-operative Community Fund to buy new drums.

The Community Fund is collected by Co-op members and shared with local community groups.

Robert Batty, from the local brigade, said: “We are thrilled with the generous grant we have received from The Co-operative.

“We will use the funding to buy new snare and bass drums for our keen band members. This new equipment will help us to attract new members, as well as boosting the skills and enjoyment of our existing band members.”
