Foden's in People's Postcode boost

Tuesday 28 December, 2021

The end of the year may be fast approaching but Foden’s Band shows no signs of slowing down, with the Sandbach organisation receiving another funding boost.

Foden’s has been successful in an application to the People’s Postcode Trust, and will receive £4,485 to purchase recording and streaming equipment.

The equipment will be a major benefit to the entire Foden’s organisation, including the junior and youth bands, enabling them to further enhance the online presence they have cultivated over the past couple of years.

Speaking about the award, Foden’s Band’s Mark Wilkinson commented: “We are extremely grateful to the People’s Postcode Trust for accepting our application, which allows us to stream rehearsals and concerts from our bandroom as well as to record as a preparation aid for concerts and contests. 

“It’s also great news for both our junior and youth bands, which will be able to access the equipment so that parents can watch rehearsals and performances from the comfort of their home. The award will allow us to increase our online presence around the world, as well as to produce new and exciting content.”
