HSBC Whitechapel Branch
East London Community Band


As a volunteer-run charity (no: 1142255), we rely on membership fees, our own fundraising activity and grant funding to operate. A small regular or one-off donation means as much to us as a foundation grant. We are hugely grateful for whatever you can give to keep us delivering genuinely accessible community music-making in East London for all. We unapologetically measure our impact in ways that don't always show up on spreadsheets.



Your support enables us to realise our ambitions and objectives such as:

  • Discounted instrument lessons

  • Inclusive participation in music

  • Free instrument loans

  • Lifelong learning

  • Intergenerational cultural activity

  • Supporting contemporary composers, music and musicians

  • Alleviating loneliness through participation 

  • Contributing to the artistic life of our borough and beyond

  • Inspiring future generations

  • Ensuring our legacy has impact beyond our 50th anniversary

  • Providing a life-enhancing experience

  • Doing something that gives people meaning

  • Bringing joy to our community


The band is very proud that we have been able to keep fees at the same level for several years running whilst still being able to provide loan instruments free of charge, low cost lessons and a wide variety of new musical experiences. 

We are hugely grateful to our supporters including: The Foyle Foundation, Tesco Community Grants, The Pemberton Barnes Trust, Aldgate and Allhallows Foundation and The Worshipful Company of Coopers.
