Thank you for your support – helping replace bagpipes destroyed by Hurricane Sandy
The evening supports pipe bands in the USA worst hit by Hurricane Sandy. There are over 120 pipe bands in New York and New Jersey. Many band members have lost instruments and kit. Our aim is to send over 6-8 brand new bagpipes to replace those destroyed. Each pipe band who receives a new set of bagpipes will be listed on Pipefest.com, Tartanweek.com and Whisky-drinker.com alongside the fundraising total of this event.
