STANHOPE SILVER PRIZE BAND 

The band's rehearsals are weekly. It performs at many local functions, charity events and contests. The band organizes concerts and festivals to which celebrity musicians are invited to perform. The band provides individual and group tuition for members and runs a Junior Band for this purpose. Each year junior members are encouraged to take part in the International Brass Band Summer School.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and there are significant future grants due to be received

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy
  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Accounts have been filed late on 3 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
  • Income has been volatile recently and was significantly lower than spending in the latest year
Established: 28 years
