Ashurst school hosts concert fundraiser
An Ashurst school hosted a successful fundraising evening which featured the amazing Southdown’s Concert Band.
Ashurst CE Aided Primary School hosted the event at St Cuthman’s Church, Steyning, on Saturday, November 13, raising a total of £1,100 towards school funds.
Pupils, staff, past pupils and parents sang along to the new Ashurst Primary school hymn, accompanied by the band.
The band is made up of a group of around 40 musicians, who played a wide variety of music to suit all tastes including Les Misérables, James Bond Collection, Amazing Grace, and the Ashurst School Hymn.
Children were also welcomed by the band to ‘have a go’ on some of the instruments in the interval, with the most popular being the eclectic range of drums.
FAPs, The Friends of Ashurst Primary School, provided refreshments and a raffle which included a Christmas tree and turkey.
One guest said: “I came away feeling very uplifted having enjoyed a real live concert for the first time for well over two years, the band were on very good form.”
The school expressed a huge thank you to all who made the evening such a success.
