Make a Donation
Here at Middleton Band we rely entirely on the support that the town and borough have provided the band since it was formed in 1876 and the continuing assistance of our supporters has been the driving force behind our success.
When you make a donation to Middleton band or Middleton Youth band, you are supporting us with our running costs. It is surprising how much it costs to run both the senior band and the youth and training bands just for one year.
With annual expenditure such as band room rent, instrument repair, music stands, new music, instrument replacement, uniform upkeep, contest entry fees, and transportation expenses, tuition fees, insurance premiums, to name but a few of the considerable outgoings. Both the senior and youth/ training bands welcome any donation, however small or indeed large!
There are several ways in which you can easily support us below from no cost options such as using our search engine or shopping via our easy fundraising, to one-off donations and annual donation subscriptions which feature many benefits to our supporters.
We also welcome those who may wish to make a voluntary monthly contribution towards the considerable costs of running our youth department.
