AMB/006MANSFIELD CORONETS MARCHING DISPLAY BAND

However they have been reformed as of 2012 - they have members ranging from three years old upwards, including disabled children. "In the 'nineties they were supported by the Queen's Grenadier Guards and we are in the process of getting them involved again. As you can imagine the cost of instruments, transport and indeed uniforms can be expensive. Even though we have been fundraising non-stop we still are not getting enough to last. We are looking for people or businesses to sponsor this worthwhile cause. We are happy to put sponsors' names and/or logos on posters, banners, etc. as we travel all over the country competing against other bands. Thank you for your time, Mr. and Mrs. S.
