The cheque was presented to support the Army Cadet Band, one of the few Military Bands in the area, following their successful annual Christmas Concert in support of the Rotary club at the May Hall, Trent College in December.

The cheque was presented to Director of Music Lieutenant Peter Ward, Band Master during rehearsals at the Sinfin Road Cadet Centre. Wing Commander Phil Giles OBE DL thanked all the cadets for their hard work and excellent performance at the Christmas Concert encouraging them to keep up the good work in the Community.
