Dunaskin Doon Band
Scottish Championships 2014
Dunaskin Doon Band were delighted to take
2nd place at the Scottish Championships on
Saturday 8th March 2014 lifting 'The Jimmy
Taylor Memorial Trophy'. The band played a
piece of music called 'Partita' by Philip Wilby
and now have the opportunity to represent
Scotland at The National Brass Band
Championships at The Centaur, Cheltenham
this September.

We would like to sincerely thank all of our
supporters and well-wishers.
A special thanks must also go to all that
helped organise our day giving the band the
preparation required to put on a good

Our biggest thanks has to go to our musical
director Gary Williams who has been an
absolute inspiration with his hard work,
dedication and enthusiasm building the band
in only 4 months to a very professional
competitive standard.

The last time the band lifted this trophy was
in 1975 - exactly 39 years ago. Coincidently
the piece the band played that day was also
called 'Partita' - although not the same
'Partita' played this time round.

Once again, from everyone at Dunaskin,
thanks for your support!
Cheltenham Fundraising:
President's 11 Mile Sponsored Walk
Unfortunately our President, Angus
Cochrane, missed the band's first
rehearsal in 1869 due to having
homework!?! - he hasn't missed many
more rehearsals since then (although
he does have a few holidays every
year!) ... in fact he recently walked 11
miles to boost the coffers in the band's
fund for the National Championships.

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
eg. DDSB14 2 to 70070
Thank you!
