We were delighted to hear about the wonderful work that Elizabeth Harrison and her team at Leyland In Tune have been doing. 

Since 2011, the monthly Leyland in Tune concerts have donated £46,289 to good causes, provided superb entertainment and refreshments to the local community, and importantly provided work for lots of talented musicians.

It doesn't just happen by magic, a lot of hard work, dedication and commitment have gone into the shows over the last 9 yars but what a success! In a time when we hear of so many clubs struggling, it's refreshing to be able to report on such a success and long may it continue.  Well done to all involved!
