Torbay Brass Band Concert
4th February 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
In Support of Rowcroft, the Rotary Club of Paignton presents:
A TORBAY BRASS BAND CONCERT OF “MUSIC FROM STAGE AND SCREEN” ”
The Torbay Brass Band (www.torbaybrassband.com) was formed in 1976 and has performed locally, nationally and internationally. The Rotary Club of Paignton has engaged the Band to provide a lively and memorable evening of “Music from Stage and Screen””.
Rowcroft Hospice (www.rowcrofthospice.org.uk) is a registered charity with running costs of more than £20,000 per day, only 27% of which are funded by the NHS, Rowcroft simply could not continue without the incredible support of the local community. The hospice helps to make every day the best day possible for patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families across South Devon. It cares for over 2000 patients each year and is currently experiencing a severe funding shortfall, so in enjoying a memorable evening of music at the Palace Theatre you will help Rowcroft continue its work, which has directly or indirectly touched the lives of almost every local person.
The Rotary Club of Paignton (www.rotaryclubofpaignton.org) has organised this event as part of its continuing programme to assist local, national and worldwide causes. The Club was founded in 1924 and is committed to the international Rotary ideal of ‘Service above Self’. Many local organisations and international charities are supported and the club has pioneered a literacy programme in local schools which has had proven success raising the reading age of children who had been falling behind.
