CCG banging the drum for local community


CCG is providing funding to help enable youngsters in Glasgow to learn how to play traditional Scottish instruments.

The Glasgow-based construction firm donated £3,000 to the Govan Schools Pipes and Drums Association (GSPDA) – an organisation that works with children from six local schools.  

The grant will be used to buy new instruments and provide free tuition to more young people in the area.  

The GSPDA was set up in 2014 to give more youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds the chance to learn Scottish instruments.

Calum Murray, director of CCG (Scotland) Ltd said, “GSPDA is an incredibly inspiring initiative –  not only does it offer young people the chance to learn one of Scotland’s national instruments, it also promotes stronger social bonds and gives our youngsters the opportunity to be part of a unique and vibrant community. We are really proud of how confident the band was in their first performance as they played very well.

“Since day one, it has been our ethos at CCG to ensure that our local communities share in our success. That is why we donate funds to good causes like GSPDA, operate a prestigious apprenticeship scheme, and seek to work with local suppliers as much as we possibly can.”
