Winter 2018 Update - Appin Community Trust - the charitable arm of Appin Community Co-operative Ltd

The bench and interpretation boards on the Clach Thoul walk have now been completed in memory of Richard Smidowitz and have been receiving favourable comments. Thanks to John Landale and Neil Black for all their hard work.

Robbie Dunlop's sister gave a generous donation in Robbie's memory and we are donating part of it to the Lunch Club's Christmas Lunch at Creagan, which Robbie so enjoyed.

We are delighted to see that the generous donation of funds for the Appin School of Dance held by the Trust continues to allow the girls to flourish at home and abroad. They deserve all their success as Ambassadors for Appin.

The Compassionate Communities Project continues to grow but we are asking your opinon on the 'manshed' as we don't think a Traditional Work Bench/Toolkit Model is what Appin wants so we are requesting your opinion. The big screen should be in Appin in the very near future and we are discussing with the Appin Hall and the Port Appin Hall the best way of taking advantage of this opportunity.
