Following two years of extensive consultation, and a ballot of members, the decision to set up the charity was taken at the AGM in October 2015.
161 members voted in the ballot and 88% of those voting approved the formation of the charity. Starting in 2016 we have nevertheless made 50 grants and given out £80,370.
Thus our music grants have been for teaching young musicians the harp and clarsach and piping grants have favoured tuition for piping and drumming. Grants have been given for piping in Forres, Moray, Ardross, Drumnadrochit, Lochalsh, Inverness, Strathpeffer and Cromarty.
