For all those who ever shop online... and even those who don't, just take a second to check this out on behalf of the band, it's a really easy way for us all to raise some funds for the band.
We have recently registered Fodens Band with a fundraising website called - the site is designed to raise money for charities and causes.
Here's how it works...
You can create an account with easyfundraising, and then in future when you do any shopping online (providing you log into your account and do it through the site) a certain % of what you spend is donated by the retailers to your chosen cause, and it doesn't cost you any more.

When u visit the site just create an account - click "register as a user" and under cause/organization search for FODENS, then you can shop via the site.  There are LOADS of companies and retailers involved - if you get your insurance/utilities/mobile phone contracts etc online, or just general shopping - Next/Argos/ are all on there and loads more, even booking rooms with Premier Inn.  Just need to remember to log in every time you do your online shopping.  It keeps track of your purchases and how much you've earned for your chosen cause.
Everyone needs to get on there and buy their Christmas presents!  Forward this to friends/family/anyone who might want to support the band.
For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
