    WHITTONSTALL COMMUNITY BAND 

    Community band
    Analysis by Giving is Great

    Positives:

    • The charity has received modest backing from several prominent grant makers, including a Community Foundation, recently

    Financial issues to consider:

    • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
    • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
    Established: 7 years
