My Dog Has Fleas is now a year old having started in early 2016. During that year, its membership has consolidated, its repertoire expanded and it has been able to make a significant contribution to Cancer Research UK, our “charity of the year”. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to MDHF’s success by playing, supporting, donating booking us for a gig or otherwise helping us develop as a band. MDHF would like to wish all these people a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
MDHF plays at charity events and for organisation who make a donation to our “charity of the year”. All monies contributed for performances are passed on to the charity, the cost of equipment purchases and overheads are covered through member subscriptions.
