Get back New York Brass Band's gear

Very sadly, New York Brass Band (NYBB) have had their van with all their instruments and equipment stolen. We are asking for your help to try and raise as much as possible to help get NYBB their instruments and gear back! 

For those of you who don't know who New York Brass Band are, they are one of the countries finest brass bands and they have brought happiness and joy to thousands of people through the power of music. 

See them putting smiles on people's faces at Glastonbury below:

They are full time working musicians and it is their livelihood. They are one of the most talented and hard working brass bands in the UK and the loss of their van and gear is devastating for them. It could not have happened to less deserving people!
