Band is jazzed up.

A junior jazz band will be hitting all the right notes at their concert debut after securing grants of pounds 14,000.

The Thorntree Golden Airs will be performing in an England against Scotland clash in Berwick from April 1 to 4.

The 32-strong group raised enough cash to have their uniforms made but were still without many instruments.

But following grants of pounds 7,000 from Tees Valley Community Foundation and pounds 6,935 from Working Neighbourhoods the band has bought glockenspiels, drums and other instruments.

Band secretary Pat Bailey said: "It is absolutely fantastic and things are beginning to slowly fall into place."
