Bumper pledge to boost Scotland’s music in schools gets recognition thanks to the work of our PR agency in Edinburgh

Scottish Schools Pipeband Championships told through a PR agency in Edinburgh

THE Scottish Schools Pipes and Drums Trust has committed £500,000 towards the tuition of Scotland’s traditional music in Scottish schools.

Such a commitment deserves to be ‘piped’ from the rooftops – and that is exactly what happened when our PR agency in Edinburgh stepped in to tell the story.

The bagpipes are a national Scottish instrument and ensuring it is kept alive today the SSPDT set up a school programme for tuition to learn the pipes and drums on the same basis as other orchestral instruments, reaching thousands of children. To find out more read the original press release here.

Wanting to spread the story, our team got to work and PR success followed:

  • 20 items of media coverage – 5,564,899 opportunities to see
  • Key national coverage with The Times, The Herald, The National, The Courier, and Press and Journal sharing the story.
  • Those important national outlets also contributed to fantastic online coverage – accessing readers that receive their news from either platform.
  • Further online coverage with the Daily Mail, BT and Evening Telegraph all publishing the story on their websites.
  • Regional coverage in the Cumbernauld News and the Mearns Leader.
