Vernon Building Society’s Best of British brass band concert raised £1,360 for local charities Stockport Foodbank and the Furniture Station, both based in Hazel Grove.
The event saw flag-waving success with over 200 attendees enjoying the musical performance by the nationally regarded Vernon Building Society (Poynton) Brass Band. £1,360 in proceeds from ticket sales and refreshments on the night went to the two charities.
Joanne Watson, Fundraiser at The Furniture Station said: “The Poynton Brass Band were absolutely wonderful. The Best of British concert raised a lot of money for two great causes.
“At a challenging time where funding is tight, the Vernon Building Society have been incredibly supportive towards the work carried out at The Furniture Station and Stockport Foodbank.”
Stockport based Vernon Building Society is an active and passionate supporter of local charities supporting charity events and initiatives throughout the year.
