Saints and friends of the band welcomed Brian Ireland on Monday 29 February, who conducted ‘Army of the Nile’ in order to raise Money for Longfield Hospice in recognition of the support they gave his wife, Lynn in her final months. His mission is to make it around as many Bands as possible, donating £1 for every player he conducts to a cause close to his heart.
Brian and Kevin, his brother, are old friends of the band with Kevin having been a member for a number of years and then later they both joined the band on Whit Friday trips.
Brian thanked the band, giving a special thank you to Dawn for arranging the evening and inviting old friends along for a lovely social as well as musical evening.
More information of Brian’s mission can be found on his Facebook page
