Warwick CCF Corps of Drums Appeal

The CCF Corps of Drums was a popular and prominent feature of Warwick School life for many years but ended in the mid-1980s. CCF OC Lt Col Keith Davenport has over 20 aspiring band members in the current CCF contingent and we now need to fund equipment and resources to re-establish the band.

We would like to raise £15,000 to purchase instruments, uniform, and other equipment to start up a new Corps of Drums.

Equipment required for the Corps of Drums includes:

  • Ten side drums with sticks, slings, drum ropes.
  • Bass drum with beaters, harness and drum apron.
  • Pair of cymbals.
  • Ten B flat flutes and pouches (approx. cost £140 each)
  • Ten silver bugles with cords (approx. cost £230) 
  • Drum Major's mace and sash.

In addition, cadets will require the appropriate uniform and costs for training. 

Thank you to OWs who have already given their support. If you like to make a donation to the Corps of Drums please visit the "Making a donation" page.
