    Weʼve raised £4,000 to help support North Lanarkshire Schools Pipe Bands participation in this year's Tartan Day celebrations in New York.

    Funded on Saturday, 6th April 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    North Lanarkshire Schools pipe bands are bound for the 'Big Apple' this April to take part in the Tartan Day Parade.

    Both the Novice and Juvenile bands will head to New York this April to march down 6th Avenue in the annual celebration of Scottish heritage.

    Pupils have been working hard to raise money towards the cost of the trip and if you would like to support them with their fundraising efforts, then please donate today.

    Many thanks,

    Pauline Shearer & Elaine Sommerville

    (on behalf of the parents of the pupils taking part).

      Mr Robert Currie (continuation) We are a party of 60 people and the cost of hiring two coaches to cover the 7 mile journey to Ellis Island will be £1845.00. Also, due to the restricted length of our short visit we have limited scope to add in additional performances. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Clan Currie Society for their kind donation towards the cost of our trip which has assisted us in making this dream become a reality for the young people in our charge.
