On behalf of the children and Board of Management of Govan Schools Pipes & Drums Association I would like to thank you and the Trustees of the Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust most sincerely for your extremely generous donation which I confirm receipt of into the GSPDA bank account on 25th August.

This money will be put to the most practical of uses of providing free bagpipe and drum tuition to approximately 100 disadvantaged children in Govan Schools each month. GSPDA remains very busy during the summer months having played at the Ibrox Fun Run, the Govan Fair, the Govan Gaelic Choir Recital Evening, the Scottish Kilt Walk, the Elder Park Fun Day and for the second year, competing in the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow. The new 2017/2018 academic year started last week and the Tutors are excited about a number of new recruits who have signed up from the schools to receive tuition.

We try to keep our “followers” up to date with developments and progress at GSPDA by updating the news items on the website https://gspda.co/govan-schools-pipes-and-drums-association/news/ so do hope you will be able to keep in touch with GSPDA through this medium.

Again, I would like to record a huge thank you to you for this second and very significant donation. If you have no objection I will update the GSPDA website with The Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust as a supporter.

Year of award:  2017
