Championship Section Brass Band, Wingates Band based in Westhoughton, is appealing to its local community, businesses, fellow bandsmen and brass band enthusiasts for financial assistance to maintain the history and traditions of brass band playing for over 140 years in the Bolton area.

Birmingham Symphony Hall, preparations are hindered with the band being on the brink of
collapse through a lack of finances.
