PLHS Pipe Band needs your help

Firstly the novice band have been nominated for a Trad Music Award, so we need as many votes as humanly possible – by 23rd November – so a quick turn around.  We’re up against two of the grade one adult bands and the North Lanarkshire schools band.  To vote for the band please log in to the survey monkey below, enter your details and then find the question about pipe bands (you don’t have to vote in all the other categories).  The members of the band are really excited about this and we’d love them to get this recognition, so anything you can do to help would be fabulous!  Thank you.

Secondly the Band have had an application accepted to be a Co-op community charity this year which means that local co-op members can opt online for 1% of all their spending to be donated to the pipe band over the next year. Below is a link to a how you can help.
