Sidmouth Town Band has received a ‘significant’ boost to develop its youth section.
Sidmouth Consolidated Charities donated £1,100 to the group to invest in its young members and training band.
The grant came from a legacy left by music teacher Marjorie Bladon.
It will be spent on a new drum kit for its newly recruited percussionists and on music and uniforms.
Town band chairman Martin Cordy, said: “Any donations to the band are always well received, but to receive a donation targeted at the development of the youth and training band will have a significant impact on the development of musical talent and help sustain the future of the band for years to come.”
