Roses Charitable Trust
Crerar Trust has donated £5,000 to Roses Charitable Trust to support the running of residential personal development outdoor activity courses on the Isle of Mull.
Roses Charitable Trust (RCT) runs the Roses Project which delivers challenging, personal development outdoor activity courses for groups of marginalised young people. The Project works with young people aged 7-21 years old.
Many of the youngsters come from difficult home environments in areas experiencing acute deprivation and social exclusion. Often these experiences have a knock on effect to their own behaviour, happiness, health and well-being.
Courses, which typically run for five days, are residential, run from Tavool House on the Scottish west coast island of Mull and delivered by the charity’s wholly owned subsidiary trading company Hebridean Pursuits Ltd led by the Operations Director and supported by a team of experienced, freelance outdoor instructors. The aim of the course is for the young people involved to have fun taking part in a range of motivational, challenging activities. These include coasteering, hill walking, camping, canyoning, abseiling, gorge walking and kayaking.
Crerar Trust’s donation will support residential personal development outdoor activity courses on the Isle of Mull annually, for groups of up to 14 young people.
