Just Giving - Text Donation
I must firstly begin with a massive
thank you, on behalf of all our
members, to everyone that has
donated to our Cheltenahm Fund - the
support received has been fantastic.
One of the schemes that our
treasurer (and soprano cornet), Hugh
Scullion, came up with was to have a
Just Giving page, allowing for text
message donations. Due to the
wonders of social media this page/text
number has been shared ... and
shared ... and shared !! and so far has
raised a total of £180. If you happen to
have any spare pennies please text
'DDSB14 £1,2,3,4,5 or 10' to
70070.
eg. DDSB14 £2 to 70070
Thank you!
