We have so many reasons to be grateful to The Gannochy Trust ; they have supported us consistently over the many years we have been in operation, helping us with everything from the purchase of specialist equipment to the redecoration of our property, and lately with the funding of our Co-ordinator's post, enabling us to improve the quality of service we offer, and extending that service to more children. A cliche perhaps, but what we have today would not have been possible, without their invaluable and continuing help.
The Trust itself was founded in 1937 by Arthur Kinmond Bell, known as A K Bell, for charitable and public purposes as a direct result of his family’s successful distilling business. A K Bell’s first project built the Gannochy Housing Estate between 1925 and 1932 to provide rented accommodation for the people of Perth. His Estate included two small farms and the Doo’cot Park cricket grounds and pavilion which he also gave to the Trust
