They came and listened to the band.

 

The wonderful 'Friends of Victoria Park' arranged an afternoon of music at the bandstand so we could raise some funds for the Bethnal Green Memorial on 4th September.

Two bands played a variety of music all afternoon, firstly the East London Late Starters, then The Broken Swing Band. The crowds built up and soon there were families picnicking around the bandstand and lots of people dancing to the music.

We were able to sell some of our goods, give out leaflets and accept donations, as Richard Desmond of the FOVP had kindly erected a gazebo for us. It was a great afternoon and we raised £340. So our thanks to everyone that helped out, all those people who put donations in our buckets, to the wonderful people in the band and the Friends of Victoria Park for organising it.
