Fundraising Dance 2017

The band would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who turned up and supported the band. We managed to raise a substantial £2426 from the night.

Ayr Pipe Band Society held a fundraising dance on Saturday the 14th October, at the Mercure Hotel, Dalblair Road, Ayr.

The purpose of the function was to raise funds for the band to purchase new uniforms and equipment for not only our competing band, but also for our new development band for learners young and old, and up and coming players. We extended a warm invitation to band members past and present, family, friends, and the good people of Ayrshire to attend a great night out in the heart of the town.

There was a buffet and two fantastic live bands playing,
The Doghouse Howlers and The Talk of the Town, a raffle and prize draws with some great prizes. The pipes and drums even played a few tunes!

We would like to say a massive thank you to the following people, stores, restaurants and businesses who have kindly donated gifts and vouchers for our raffle that was held on the Night of the Fundraising Dance. We now have over 50 raffle prizes with a great range of different gifts and vouchers with many more sponsors still donating. Below is the list of raffle prizes so far.
