Burneside Brass Band will give Rory the Robin a new home
1:00pm Thursday 20th February 2014 in News
THE owners of lifestyle store Armstrong Ward in Kendal have found a new home for a giant-sized Robin, the talking point of their Christmas display.
Jacqueline and Andrew Ward’s search for a local organisation who could use Rory to fundraise for them ended with an appeal from Burneside Brass Band.
The band will auction the three-foot-high bird later in the year at a black tie fundraising event with Windermere Rotary Club.
Funds raised will go towards the cost of a new band room.
