Just an idea that was briefly talked about in our last committee meeting.
In our remit as a “community” brass band, I wondered if we could help the more vulnerable members of The Moss Rose community by providing a Christmas hamper to a “needy” family (or maybe 2). The school has agreed to decide and distribute it.
Food poverty is a huge issue in many towns such as Macclesfield and I thought that we could help.
Many children in schools like Ash Grove Academy are entitled to free school meals. For many children, this will be the only hot meal they get during the day. Parents will often struggle during holidays, sometimes even not eating themselves in order to feed their children.
I will be putting a large box on the stage during band practice for donations of appropriate items.
