There was some really good news for Carnoustie and District Pipe Band last Tuesday, December 30, with the presentation of a cheque for £100 from the local branch of the TSB by Ruth Forbes who said: “TSB like to show our support for organisations and activities which have worked within the local community.” She felt that Carnoustie and District Pipe Band, where almost half the members are children and teenagers, did a great deal of valuable work in this respect, and the TSB was delighted to provide support. The cheque was received from Ruth by four members of the band—drummers Jack and Amy Hart, and pipers Glen Kelly and Sandy Burgess.
Sandy Burgess, Pipe Band treasurer, thanked Ruth, and the TSB for the presentation of the cheque. He said: “The Carnoustie and District Pipe Band took real pride in its role as a community organisation. On behalf of the Band, I am very grateful for the TSB’s support. The money will be of great assistance in the purchase of items of equipment and uniforms, particularly for the band’s younger members.”
