Brass Toff Donate to Africa

Brass Toff, instrument repair and renovation specialists based in Warrington, have been on a mission to help disadvantaged children in Africa.

Each summer, Brass Toff work alongside Steve Caunce to collect donated instruments and bring old ones back to life for children in Gambia and Zimbabwe. This year, just in time for Christmas, the Mandanari Scout Band and Bakoteh National Scout Band in Gambia were brought the gift of music!

Paul Andrews, owner of Brass Toff, said, ‘We are proud to have the opportunity to transform the lives of so many children and young people… We have heard what a positive effect our gift of music has brought, not only to the children but the whole communities in which they live.’
