The Real Answer

The Trust is a tiny outfit of three full-time staff, guided and supported by a Board of Trustees and a group of former Trustees, friends, advisers, helpers and the occasional project manager in shining armour. Everyone who works with the Trust is an enthusiast and story-lover fuelled by passion, hot chocolate, the odd dram and a bit of money. Being small means being fleet of foot, always birlin’ with ideas (the Trust’s and its partners) and always ready to listen to more.
