Our Vernon Building Society Poynton Brass Band put on a festive busk at Cheadle Royal during the Christmas season in order to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The band played a selection of Christmas tunes outside Sainsbury's and John Lewis in Cheadle for all of the last minute shoppers that passed by. A total of £502.70 was raised on the day, all of which has been donated directly to Macmillan.


The Poynton Brass Band chairman Frank Needham said 'We are delighted that we have been able to raise so much money for such a worthy cause that's close to our hearts this year. We are looking forward to a busy 2019 of concerts and contests and will of course be helping our sponsors - the Vernon Building Society to raise money for charities in Stockport and the local area.'

The band's performance marks the 4th year that they have performed this festive Christmas busk. Our Director of Sales and Marketing Ian Keeling said 'Once again the Vernon Brass Band put on a fantastic show for the community and raised much needed funds for a worthy cause. It is incredible to see the way in which the local community comes together to help others during the Christmas season.'

We also raised £106.02 on their annual Christmas jumper day, raising money for Cash for Kids who respond to the needs of young people across Greater Manchester.
