What people are saying

‘New writing for young people can be hard to come by and through this process, we have an original script that can be used by our students (and others!) for many years to come. We cannot provide opportunities like this to our students without the help of funding. The money we received from the Community Trust has been so beneficial!’ – Ashley Foster, Artistic Director Byre Youth Theatre

‘The aim was to provide a weekend full of concerts and workshops to bolster the appreciation and support the education of traditional music in St Andrews. Throughout the year we hoped to reach out to more of the community to get them interested in this type of music and offer a weekend that celebrated the Scottish culture and this historic town.’ – Sarah Lamorte, St Andrews Folk & Traditional Music

‘We value the contribution of everyone who works with Families First whether directly with service users or indirectly through fundraising, administration and transport. Awards from the St Andrews Community Trust have helped us with a number of projects over the years and the funding they are able to offer is invaluable to our organisation. We really appreciate the local support we receive, last year we realised that 1/3 of all our funding comes from local people. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helps us make a difference to the children and young people we work with.’  –  Morag Coleman, Manager Families First

‘We are huge supporters of the St Andrews Community Trust. To date we have made five applications and have had assistance with refurbishing train sheds, CCTV and accessible play equipment. The most recent contribution has allowed us to purchase a new utility vehicle for the park, which will be invaluable in our objective to efficiently run all the facilities at Craigtoun Country Park and continue to restore it as a “Jewel in the Crown” in Fife and the surrounding area.’ – Kyffin Roberts, Chairman

 ‘Holy Trinity is central to Scottish history. Events here in the summer of 1559 transformed the religious future of this country. This project, supported by the Community Trust, has tried to recapture the character of Holy Trinity as it was on the eve of the momentous changes of 1559 and our hope is that it will act as a community resource fostering awareness of a key local heritage site, and its role shaping the burgh of St Andrews and the history of Scotland as a whole. It will also produce digital resources which could be used in future permanent exhibits, and which can be used for teaching purposes (at both primary and secondary level).’  – Dr Bess Rhodes, of the Schools of History and Computer Science

The funds provided by the Community Trust were invaluable, particularly in the early days of setting up Community Aid St Andrews. For example, their donation paid for us to set up our website and get leaflets printed for volunteers to deliver. We’re extremely grateful to them for being able to respond so quickly to help our community. Chris Wallard, one of the co-ordinators of CASA group
