SPALDING’S Marching Ambassadors are powering their way towards a fundraising goal to take them to the Olympic games.

South Holland District Council is the latest to hand over some cash, with the £850 proceeds from a raffle of a civic event being donated to band members.

Bandmaster Jim Bright, his daughter Catherine Bright and grandson Tristan will join fellow band members Annabel Newell and Carol Felts in performing in the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 games in London.

However, they need to raise £2,500 to cover transport and accommodation costs - of which they are now about half way there.

Jim said: “Any help we can get will be gratefully received.”
