Running for Charity

Our very own Stuart McCallum recently took part in the Glasgow Half Marathon along with over 24,000 other keen (crazy)runners, finishing in a very respectable 2hrs.
Stuart decided that when he would do the run he would try his best and  raise as much money as he could for a local charity that is very close to all our hearts.  Up until now he has raised an amazing £4750 and donations are still coming in.  If you feel you would like to make a wee donation before it shuts please click on the link below

 The McCallum Bagpipe chanter that has been so successful for the bands is called the Breton chanter which is slightly lower pitched to blend in with the bombards and the coloured buttons are inserted into the holes so that the pipers can play C natural and F natural without changing their fingering.
