The National Piping Centre is calling all pipers from across Scotland and beyond to join them in paying tribute to the thousands of key workers who are still working to keep the country fed, cared for and safe.

Tonight the National Piping Centre is asking all pipers to go into their gardens, be at their front door or strike up in their living room, wherever one can play safely and still keep socially distant, and play Scotland the Brave to support #NHStheBrave.

The national piping effort will coincide with #ClapForOurCarers, where people are encouraged to do a round of applause out of doors, window and gardens. Last week thousands across the Uk took part.

This rousing tune will demonstrate the gratitude to key workers across the nation, supporting those who are helping to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as hopefully fortifying them to carry on through this tough time.
