Who we are – The Scottish Schools Pipes and Drums Trust is a registered charity that promotes and supports school and youth pipe bands throughout Scotland. We have extensive relationships with autonomous school groups, local authorities and third-party organisations who share our interests in this field.

What we are looking for – an entrepreneurial and driven person holding extensive experience of fundraising and with a genuine interest in making it easier for local volunteer groups to raise funds for their pipe-bands. There is tremendous scope for sponsorships and grants as well as creating opportunities for local people to leave gifts in their will, and helping to boost cost-effective event fundraising.

Have you had extensive experience of fundraising and want to play a part in making this easier for others? Are you interested in innovative landscape design as well as improving garden maintenance — designing local fund raising schemes and templates as well as guiding volunteers into thinking the unthinkable?
