Here are some of the recent activities that the Ponton House Trust has been involved in.

New Trustees

We are delighted to have three new Trustees who joined the Board of Trustees in April – Lynsey Kerr, Fiona Wilson and Alex Johnson. Lynsey is a solicitor at Lindsays in Edinburgh, Fiona works at NHS Lothian and Alex is at Stockbridge Parish Church. These appointments will ensure that the Trust continues to have a broad range of skills and knowledge available to enable the Trustees to continue to successfully pursue the charitable purposes of the Trust.

2017 News

During 2017 the Trust received a large number of applications for financial support from a wide range of different charitable organisations. The focus of the Trust continues to be on charities working with young people in the Edinburgh and Lothian area, and over the course of the year some 30 donations totalling in excess of £58,000 were made.   Since the Trust was set up it has made donations of almost £1 million.
