It’s been a long haul trying to put the fundraising together to launch the programme. Over the last 14 months we’ve been pitching our plans to dozens of public and private funders across the UK and even in Europe and we are now one decision away from knowing whether we achieved our first fundraising target of just over £174,000 which will enable us to deliver the first wave of our planned programme.

So far we’ve had confirmed offers from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Gannochy Trust, Creative Scotland, the Postcode Lottery Trust, Perth & Kinross Council, the St James Place Foundation and Scotmid. If we get a ‘yes’ from our one remaining funder at the beginning of April, we’ll be in a position to launch three projects that we are really excited about which will focus on the extraordinarily rich archaeological and cultural heritage of the Cateran Trail area.
