Charity Status Achieved!
After 169 years of genuinely superb history (remember Eagley Band is one of the oldest brass bands in the world, older than Black Dyke and most others) at 3.25pm yesterday afternoon, Thursday, it was confirmed in writing that we have successfully applied for, and achieved, UK Charity Status and has been entered onto the Register of Charities with the Registered Charity Number 1181741.
It is a fantastic achievement and effort by quite a number of people, both on the committee and some who are not, but huge congratulations to everyone involved in this superb success.
Sincere thanks to our three Trustees too, Gerry Russell, Clive Atty and Pete Lyons.
It is yet another brilliant Eagley achievement on top of so many others we have built up this past two and a half years.
