Brackley and District Band is celebrating after receiving a £300 donation from the GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund.

Brackley and District Band has been running since the 1970’s and offers everyone of any age or musical ability the opportunity to play an instrument and join a fun, inclusive and sociable group.

The organisation is made up of a senior band and a junior band called the ‘Majors and Minors’, both of whom perform at private and community events including carols outside the Town Hall at Christmas, which this year is on Sunday 20 December. Their next concert is their Christmas concert which is the following evening on Monday 21 December, 7.30pm at St Peter's Church in Brackley. Admission is free so this is a great opportunity to get together with some friends and family and enjoy some seasonal favorites just a few days before the big day.  

Nick Wilson, a Committee Member, says: “This donation from the GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund means that we can now invest in more instruments and music which in turn will encourage more people to come and learn how to play an instrument, join our senior band or come and listen to us at one of our concerts. If you are interested in joining the Band please drop us an email at and we'll get in touch. More information about both groups can be found on our website”

GALAXY Hot Chocolate is looking to help small, local community groups and charities across the UK and Ireland by donating cash awards to support warm-hearted people and projects.

Michelle Frost, spokeswoman for GALAXY Hot Chocolate said: “We know that across the UK and Ireland smaller charities and community groups are struggling to make ends meet despite the efforts of a huge number of warm-hearted volunteers.

“The GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund aims to give them a helping hand and hopefully inspire more people to get involved.”

Open for entries until February 28 2016, the Fund will distribute five £300 awards to deserving recipients every week.  Applications to the fund can be made on the GALAXY Hot Chocolate website

GALAXY hot chocolate offers the smooth creamy taste of GALAXY chocolate in a heart-warming drink.
