LARGS residents are in with a chance of winning a Christmas hamper worth £100 in a fund-raising raffle.

The Largs Boys' Brigade Pipe Band is offering up the hamper in the first in a series of fund-raisers to help with the cost of running the band.

Tickets for the raffle, costing £1 each, will go on sale from Thursday, November 23 and can be obtained via any member of the band - or by contacting the band's pipe major, Eddy van Kaathoven, via Facebook.

Tickets will also be on sale at the 1st Largs Boys' Brigade Christmas Fayre, taking place in the Dunn Memorial Hall on Saturday December 9 between 10am and 12 noon.

The prize draw will be carried out at 12 noon that same day, live on the 1st Largs Boys' Brigade Facebook page.

Largs BB Pipe Band is fully run by volunteers and also has a team of dedicated tutors who twice weekly spend their time ensuring the next generation of players are ready to step up.

The band is organising a number of fund-raising events to ensure all members can remain "dressed to impress" and to keep performing to their best level.
