Where would we be without our helpers and supporters? Well, we would not be able to do half of what we have achieved during this Armistice Centenary year. Footscray-Yarraville City Band would like to thank all our helpers and supporters who do fundraising, promotion and community engagement, selling tickets and memorabilia, Front of House, Back Stage and technical support as well as providing sound advice to enable the band to achieve it’s goals. We’re incredibly grateful to have such a talented and willing crew supporting the band in it’s endeavours. Each and every helper is as much a part of the band as the those who sit in rehearsals and make the music.
Of special mention is Lorraine Wright and John Hoppe who have both thrown themselves into The Silent Anzac Project with an astonishing amount of dedication and perseverance. Lorraine and John have been working hard all year to promote our shows, develop contacts with potential project partners, fundraising, coordination of commemorations, poppies and wreaths, copious amounts of letter writing, research and just plain hard slog. Thank you, John and Lorraine.
