Brass Band in need of sponsorship - Plusnet?

Perhaps PN can help out this Yorkshire band - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-20897583

Infinitely preferable to their sponsorship of Big Brother from a bit back!

Couldn't agree more, jelv  Wink
Perhaps Plusnet could use this famous brass band in TV commercials.

An ideal opportunity for PN here and it will also help keep the band together.

Well that is why I posted this in hope that someone from PN would read it and think "What a good idea"!
Great shame if this marvellouse band had to finish.  Dont normally like brass but they are good.

I flagged this up to one of the DC team - they were going to alert marketing. Be interesting to see if anything comes of it - looks a perfect fit to me.

I don't know how much money is needed to keep the band going but it is possibly quite small in relation to a normal advertising/PR budget. There could also be an additional spin-off to PN because there could be a lot of free publicity as a result of them saving the band.

What a great idea.
PlusNet, seeing as you've used brass bands in your TV adverts previously, surely you can help these guys out?
