Asset Guardian Solutions Limited is delighted to announce that it will continue to sponsor Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band, as it now goes into its third year of Sponsorship.
AGSL have been an official sponsor for the pipe band for the last two years and by supporting them, it allows the band to continue developing its links with up and coming Pipers and Drummers.
Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band have made historical achievements which places them as one of the World’s leading Pipe Bands. This was demonstrated when they won the World Pipe Band Championships in 2015 in their home city of Glasgow. This was Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia’s 16th World Title in the band’s 106 year history. Sponsorship is extremely important for the band, as it allows them to preserve their status as one of the more storied institutions in pipe band history.
The link between Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band and Asset Guardian Solutions Limited stems from the relationship with the well-known McAllister family who have been involved in both organisations for a number of years.
Sam Mackay, CEO of Asset Guardian Solutions said “We are delighted to provide some financial security for the band, we know the financial and physical effort required to sustain an organisation such as Shotts. My business partner, Ewan McAllister, himself a past player in Shotts, is still involved in the band on a daily basis and keeps us informed of the band’s amazing progress over the last few years. In fact, Ewan’s family has been involved in the band since 1927 so you can see the long connection.We are happy that we can play our part in this success story. ”
Pipe Major Ryan Canning said: “The band is absolutely thrilled to announce our partnership with Asset Guardian Solutions Limited. It’s such an enormous job to run a band of this size, and having the support of Sam Mackay, our own Ewan McAllister, and the Asset Guardian Solutions team will go a long way towards helping us continue in our development. It’s also very meaningful to us that Asset Guardian Solutions is a local company, supporting a band in its own local community. It’s with the help of this kind of local support on which Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia was originally founded in 1910, and we’re very proud that Asset Guardian Solutions will be a part of our next chapter.”
