On Sunday July 1st The Clara Town Band will host a free Summer Concert in St. Brigid’s Church, Clara at 3pm. The event will feature both the senior and junior bands. Formed in 2006, this is the first time both bands will travel to Clonakilty to compete in the ‘South of Ireland Band Championships’ on July 7th. The Summer Concert will help greatly to prepare for the competition and the committee have chosen Irish charity, Breast Cancer Research as the recipient of the event, a national charity that funds a comprehensive research programme at the Lambe Institute for Translational Research, NUI Galway.
In recent years and months a number of the band members have lost loved ones to breast cancer along with a number of Clara women currently going through treatment. The band are delighted to have the opportunity to support a cause which is so close to many members hearts.
The event is free but those attending will be asked to make a donation to Breast Cancer Research on the day.
