Members of Oban, Lorn and the Islands communities are being urged to step out onto their doorsteps once more on Thursday night and show their appreciation for NHS staff and carers.
Pipers and drummers have also been invited to take part following the huge success of Oban High School Pipe Band’s contribution last week.
The plan is to continue the piping tribute at 8.05pm after the hand-clapping which will start at 8pm.
Pipe Major Angus McColl has decided on two tunes for this week’s tribute – I see Mull (Chì mi Muile) and Donald MacLean’s Farewell to Oban.
If you or a friend or family member play the pipes please make sure they know about this. Or if you know or can contact your local pipe band please tell them.
In addition people are being asked to light up the sky while the pipes are playing by shining their torches upwards.
