Ashford Community Drum Band CIC

Ashford Community Drum Band CIC does not expect participants for financial contribution as we believe this could prohibit some people from being part of the band. Instead the band is run as a Community Interest Company (CIC) receiving grants from various sources such as local government creative funds. Thomas Green (band leader) is responsible for seeking ongoing funding but if you are able to gift a donation towards band equipment this is most appreciated. We have a list of equipment we are working towards below.

Anybody is welcome to make a donation to support the work of the band. Please liaise with Thomas via the contact page or donate directly to the Ashford Community Drum Band CIC here; account number 08084640 sort code 08-71-99.
