Charity Events


Fund Raising? Organising an event and want to make an impact?

Why not kick start it with the sound of Bagpipes? 

Having a Bagpiper for events can be a fantastic way to entertain your clients! As a Scottish bagpiper for hire, I am very happy and enthusiastic about being apart of these type of events. In the past, we have been proud to be associated with Help For Hero’s & The Seagulls Trust Falkirk and I’m keen to do more. If you feel that you have a cause and would like to know more please get in touch and we will work something out


“On behalf of all at Help for Heros, I wanted to write and thank you personally for your contribution to the success of the Help for Heros Jubilee Challenge. Thank you so much for showing your support and making the challenge all the more special. It’s not only the participants; but all of you the organisers, the music, the ‘send-off party’ whose encouragement and expertise came together and helped create a unique sense of camaraderie and solidarity in preparation of the challenge ahead”

Andrew kindly agreed to perform at our first ever doors open day event in September 2011 and we were all inspired by the quality and range of music that he played on board the Govan Seagull whilst cruising along the Union Canal with passengers and friends.Andrew has a fantastic personality and got on well with all of our guests & volunteers, he was also very flexible and played at various times throughout the day. 

He really did woo the audience both young and old and played our own tune composed by Captain Gordon Daly.

I would recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a piper and will definitely be calling on him again for any future occasions such as our 30th-anniversary celebrations, the big lunch and our teddy bear parachute jump in 2012 and others in years to come.

Once again, thank you from us and all of our guests; you made our event a true success!
