1st Troon BB Pipe Band is at the start of their summer competition season and has around a dozen new boys who are competing for the first time.
The band has also launched a “Mile of Pennies” fundraising campaign. To lay pennies end to end from Troon Old to Royal Troon Golf Club (a distance of 1 mile) would take £848 worth of pennies. The band is hoping to make £1000 and reach Royal Troon before The Open.
Pennies, coins, notes can be handed to any band member, the Church Office, Andy Fell, or drop them in on a Tuesday or Thursday night band practice. There is a progress chart in the Hall Corridor, so you can see how well the appeal is doing.
