Band to play charity concert

THE band of the Yorkshire Regiment is playing a concert in aid of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) Forces Help, at Barnsley Lamproom Theatre on Friday, February 18.

The band was formed in 2008 after the re-introduction of four new Territorial Army Bands.

The 35-piece band is based at the 4th Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment at the TA Centre in Huddersfield.

Apart from one full-time administrator, the musicians are all volunteers, who are drawn from all areas of Yorkshire.

SSAFA offers help and services reflecting the financial, practical and emotional issues facing people who have served in any of the armed forces. Help is freely available to virtually everyone with services connections.

Tickets are £10. For details, contact the theatre on 01226 200075.
