Recycle your old bagpipes to help a new generation

A charity appeal is being made in East Dunbartonshire for old bagpipes to be donated to help youngsters learn the instrument.

The Scottish Schools Pipes and Drums Trust is giving free tuition to more than 1000 pupils in schools across Scotland – many in the most deprived areas – and need instruments for the youngsters to play.

They have launched a Bagpipe Amnesty appeal called Old Pipes for New Players.

Pipes can be handed into Bishopbriggs, Kirkintilloch and Milngavie Fire Stations from February 1-14.
