I AM PLEASED TO REPORT SUCCESS.
Have just now heard from a happy-in-the-wee-hours Brammers that the Linwood College appeal has been SUCCESSFUL.

The Linwood College Orchestra SHALL be at the Abbey on Anzac Day. Shezan, Femme, Noe, Brammers, all of you: you lot are heroes.

Enough was raised not only to allow this dream to go forward, but, as Mrs Hyde advises Brammers, a bit over:

'[which] funding is being put towards adding a couple of students who had had to drop out; paying for some unanticipated accommodation expenses; building some crates as replacement instrument travel cases (five double basses and then some!); maybe even providing food for the times when the kids were expected to feed themselves.'

Well done, all of you.

Oh, that's fantastic - I'm so glad. It's very hard to understand how great a help music - particularly group music of whatever kind - can be when you're young and poor - I know, because I've been there. I think that's the best twenty-five quid I've spent this year.

Well done to all else.

Hardly

You rallied us all, you kept it front and center, and you not only cared but acted as well.

That. Counts.

This is wonderful news. Thanks for letting us know. I'll forward this on to my coworkers who were also spreading the news and the need along their networks.

Forgive the delay, was getting The Book done and dusted.

Thank you for helping.
