Ørsted fantastic support to help grow the organisation!

21 Apr 2024

Twelve months ago ECE were fortunate to be awarded with an East Coast Community Grant funded by the fantastic Ørsted. This has allowed us to visit numerous schools over the period and generate a new generation of members within the band. Thanks to Ørsted's generosity, our region will continue to be a stronghold for the marching arts, ensuring its longevity and furthering its impact in our community. We'd like to thank Ørsted for all of the support and look forward to a bright future!

Grant award

26 Jun 2023

East Coast Elite is thrilled to share the exciting news of our recent grant approval, which will enable us to not only sustain but also expand our organisation in the upcoming 12 months.

We are incredibly grateful to Ørsted for their generous contribution of £3600 through their East Coast Community Fund, which will play a pivotal role in supporting the various expenses associated with our organisation. This grant will significantly contribute to covering our school room and field rental costs, as well as assist in maintaining our truck. Over the course of the next year, our primary focus will be on growing our membership.

Despite the challenges posed by the Covid Pandemic, we have persevered and are determined to extend access to music and dance activities individuals within our community. By expanding our reach and welcoming more participants, we aim to foster a vibrant and inclusive environment that promotes the arts. It is worth noting that the marching arts scene in the United Kingdom is becoming increasingly niche, with a much smaller number of remaining groups in the entire country.

In this context, the grant received from Ørsted assumes even greater significance. Not only does it provide vital support for our organisation, but it also serves as a testament to the value of preserving this unique cultural activity within the UK. Thanks to Ørsted's generosity, our region will continue to be a stronghold for the marching arts, ensuring its longevity and furthering its impact in our community.

East Coast Elite is sincerely thankful to Ørsted for their support and belief in our mission. With this grant, we are inspired to continue our efforts in promoting music and dance, fostering creativity, and enriching the lives of those involved. We look forward to the exciting journey ahead and the positive impact we will create together.

We are currently looking to enhance our membership so if you or someone you know may be interested please do come along and see what is on offer.
