New Whistle Head

Posted by Millerwicksni on May 26, 2014 at 4:20 AM Comments comments (1310)

Roy McManus from Belfast has recently developed a new whistle head that fits directly into the liner on the barrel of our Bb flute. I have had a chance to play with it and it's really amazing, makes the flute sound like a whistle but giving you the added benefit of having keys so you don't have all that awkard cross fingering especially if your not used to playing a whistle.

Check out the video link below as Stuart Boyd takes a closer look at the new head

Cheque Handed Over

Mr David Charleton from Hope Builders receives the cheque from Paul Irvine Miller Wicks.

David is in charge of Hope Builders and is also a director of Fields of Life. He is leading a team that will be going to Uganda in January 2011 to build a school for fields of life and also doing some work for New Beginnings.

If anyone is ever interested in giving some of the own personal time to do some charity work like this, I know Hope Builders would be only to glad to hear from you. You can volunteer via the Fields of Life web site which is it's a life changing experience!

Uganda Project Update

Posted by Millerwicksni on October 18, 2011 at 9:35 AM Comments comments (0)

In total we raised about £700 from the raffle of the Crown flute.

The money is going to Hope Builders charity who builds the schools in Uganda for Fields of Life and also does some work for New Beginnings.

We had planned to give the money to Fields of Life & New Beginnings but since Hope Builders is going to be doing work for both organisations in the New Year we felt that it would be just as beneficial to give it to them.

David Charleton the founder of Hope Builders is a local man from Ballymartin near Kilkeel. Each year he takes a team of dedicated workmen and ladies to Uganda where they build a school for Fields of Life.

In January 2012 the team will be travelling to Nakasongola in Uganda to work for both organisations
