Msers and their supporters are nothing if not inventive, Forres-based knitters and crafters have knitted an entire pipe band and will be showing them off at Piping@Forres, the European Pipe Band championships being hosted in the town on June 25th.

One special "Piper" is being raffled with half of the proceeds going to the Moray MS Support Group. Thanks to all the wonderful knitters and helpers.

From Sharon at Varis Crafts:

"Guess his birthday, £2 per go or 3 for £5. Available at Varis Crafts now or at Piping@Forres on 25th June in the craft tent.   There will be a full knitted pipe band of approximately 30, available to buy at £35 each, with all proceeds going to the Highland Hospice and Moray MS Support Group. We have been knitting them since April and have had a band of volunteers helping since being asked by Piping@Forres to take over the knitting of them as Betty McKay, the former stalwart is no longer able to."
