Merry Christmas - A big thank you to all our backers and here is our latest news!!

Merry Christmas Since starting our Crowdfunding Campaign, to take part in the Tartan Week parade in New York on 7th April 2018, there have been a number of developments behind the scenes. 

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (Western Isles Council) have endorsed the SLPB as Youth Cultural Ambassadors for the Western Isles and have offered financial support to the trip. 

There have been many donations kindly sent directly to the pipe band totalling around £20,000. In total, we estimate that we are now around ¾ of the way towards our target of £40,000, which is great but we do have a little more to raise. 

We are still seeking a main banner sponsor, so if there are any businesses out there who might be interested in being carried to New York and down 6th Avenue on our banners, press releases, t-shirts and photos - please ask them to get in touch. 

Our future plans are to have a Star Studded Concert towards the end of January and we are currently talking to three famous traditional music artists - so watch our Facebook page and don’t miss the chance to snap up those tickets for a great family night out!! 

While we are very grateful for all those who have contributed to date, we are now in the final 10 days of the pipe band Crowdfunding campaign and could do with a little boost on the last stretch. 

There is still time to donate and if there is anyone else you think may still wish to contribute, please just give them a wee nudge and direct them to our Crowdfunding page. The youngsters in the pipe band would really appreciate it. 

Also, sharing our Crowdfunding page on your Facebook or Twitter account takes seconds, costs nothing but could really benefit our cause with a few more donations.

 Moran taing, Nollaig Chridheil agus Bliadhn' ùr Mhath dhuibh uile 

Many thanks and have a lovely Christmas. 

Best wishes
