Isle of Man Concert

Wednesday 8 November, 2017

Rushen Silver Band in the Isle of Man
held a concert on 21 October with guest
conductor Richard Evans and soloist
Bobby Corkish from Fairey Band, which
raised a total of £1,364. The money will
be split between The Salvation Army and
The Chris Lucas Trust.

Tom Sinden, Chairman of the band,
comented: “We are very grateful
to Richard, Bobby, the Friends of
Rushen Silver Band and everyone who
attended the concert for making it
such a memorable evening. The event
was funded by the Alistair Drinkwater
Memorial Fund, so every penny of the
total will be split between the two
charities. The Salvation Army does a lot
of work on the island to help the more
vulnerable in our community, while
The Chris Lucas Trust funds research in
to defeating the cancer that afflicted
Alistair, so it is terrific to be able to help
both causes through Alistair’s Fund.”
