It is with great sadness that we have to announce that this weekend we lost a friend, a master craftsman and a man who was an integral part of the Show of Hands story. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his family, friends and all that knew him. Rest in peace David, your voice lives on in every note that we play.
As many of you know, David & Nick visit Abbotsbury each year to showcase their beautiful hand made instruments and generously donate one every year for our raffle. This year it will be an Octave Mandola.
This year David asked for the money raised to go to Exeter Rotary, so we have taken the unusual step of opening up the raffle to everyone by creating a Just Giving page. Visit https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/abbotsbury and for every £1 donated we will enter one ticket into the raffle, which will be drawn on the 1st July at Abbotsbury.
Davids’ son Nick Oddy will be at Abbotsbury this year – so do go and say hello, or visit http://www.oddyluthiers.co.uk to find out more information about these beautiful hand made instruments.
