Lanarkshire Church set to receive piano donation to music store this Christmas
The Music Village is once again bringing the gift of music to the religious community of East Kilbride with its annual piano donation drive.
Now in its fifth year, the initiative is a small gesture from the small independent business to show its gratitude to the townspeople for their support for the past 28 years.
Their annual mission to spread some joy began in 2017, the year before Village Music’s 25th anniversary, when staff thought it would be good to give something back to the residents of East Kilbride to show their appreciation.

They offered to donate a brand new digital piano to a church in East Kilbride every Christmas.
St Bride’s, Claremont, Moncrieff and Calderwood Baptist parish churches have already received a donation.
Village Music owner Jamie Finn said Lanarkshire Live : “This year, we continue our mission to return the gift of music to the people of East Kilbride by donating a piano to a church based in the city.
“It’s a small gesture to show our thanks to the people of EK for the 28 years of support the city has given to our small independent music store, Village Music.
“Over the past decade, many retail outlets large and small have struggled even with huge chains and businesses to close branches or go into liquidation.
“But Village Music has held up – whether through the skins of our teeth – thanks to the amazing people of East Kilbride who have continued to support us, especially through COVID and the lockdown.
“2017 was our 25th anniversary and in that year we made a commitment to donate a piano to a church in East Kilbride every Christmas to thank the townspeople.
“So far St Bride’s, Claremont, Moncreiff and Calderwood Baptist Church have received a piano from us, and this year we are looking for people to nominate and vote for their local church on our Facebook page or, if they are not. not online, by going through the store and putting a vote in our ballot box. “
Closing of the votes on Tuesday, December 21.
Entries will be counted that afternoon and the piano will be delivered to the winner that evening.
