A local band would like to thank members of the public who contributed to their street collection last month.

A total of £2995.95 was raised on Friday, August 14 as Portadown Defenders Flute Band held their annual parade and competition. A total of 62 bands from across the Province attended the event, which is now one of the pinnacle parades on the marching band calendar.

Money raised on the night will help fund band activities and progression for the next 12 months.
