Supporting Charity Events


ScottishPower Pipe Band News



On Saturday 17th September the band were out supporting the thousands of female runners participating in this year’s Cancer Research UK, Race for Life – Pretty Muddy 5k obstacle course, held in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow.


Scattered over the course they played to boost the runners as they made their way around and to help ScottishPower reach their target fundraising figure of £10m for this great charity. The band are proud to have been involved in supporting these events since the start.
