Homeground - Spread the Word

homegroundHomeground is a not-for-profit Social Enterprise which raises funds to assist vulnerable people in remaining independent in their own homes.  This is done with advice and practical help to secure appropriate support services and funding when no other source of help can be found.

Through a series of concerts, the organisation aim to help returning service people who have been injured in theatres of war.  The Coming Home project provides specially adapted accommodation to enable the seriously injured to remain independent.

Homeground has a house band that will appear at all of the concerts. This consists of the Union Band, piper Becky Taylor and Singer Thea Shead.  They will be accompanied by special guests, all of them well loved artists in the folk genre.

All profit made from these concerts is sent to the charities, so obviously the more ticket sales the better.  However, the plan is to avoid spending large amounts on advertising, so social media is important, as is word of mouth. Spread the news!

Saturday 27th April 7.30pm HOMEGROUD with special guest VIN GARBUTT at
KoKo's 3 Elizabeth Street, Burnley BB11 2BQ
