In 2016 the band was fortunate in securing sponsorship from the Seven Hills - Toongabbie - Wentworthvile RSL Sub Branch.

The band would like to acknowledge that their annual grant along with the use of premises for practice and fund raising activities at both the Blacktown and Pennant Hills Bowling Clubs has made a massive difference to the bands general management and has allowed us to invest more resources into teaching and growing our membership and purchasing many of the finer items of band equipment that otherwise we would not be able to afford. 


March 2019: The band is honoured to acknowledge the support given to us by R.T Shepherd & Son by way of 50 brand new Shepherd Chanters.  In our ever constant desire to strive for a better performance and a more accurate sound having what we consider to be the best made chanter in the world will go along way toward us improving.

The financial saving by way of this sponsorship will allow us to utilise the funds we raise to be put toward other projects. Much of this will certainly go toward our teaching programme.  A subject that we know is near and dear to Pipe Major R.T Shepherds heart.  From all at GMM to the staff and owners of RT Shepherd and Son, our deepest gratitude.

The band would also like to acknowledge the following business's and individuals who have assisted us with goods and services :

RT Shepherd & Son

Berlsa Trading - Celtic Sales

Bunnings - Castle Hill & Windsor                  

The Sydney School of Piping & Drumming

In late 2020 the band set up an international online solo piping competition and through a dated first prize from R.T.Shepherd & Son the competition was titled the 2020 Shepherd Challenge for the Young Global Piper of the Year.

Further assistance by means of discounted prizes were also secured and much appreciated from:
