The Crerar Trust is our charitable trust that has a key focus on improving the quality of everyday lives in local communities across Scotland.

Bettering the quality of life for people from a variety of backgrounds is at the heart of Crerar Hotel Group, which is why The Crerar Trust was established to give back to local communities. As a charitable trust funded by the Crerar Hotel Group, the Crerar Trust is tasked with gifting more than half of the company’s annual distributable profits to good causes. These organisations have links to where Crerar Hotels are based or have interests.

The Trust has donated over £7.5 million in the past 19 years, to hundreds of community groups and charities. As Crerar Trust Chairman, Paddy Crerar, explains, “it’s our customers that are making the difference to everyday lives. Without their patronage we could give nothing back.”
