Dear Supporter
As you may know Kirkcudbright Development Trust is leading a project to create a Community Activity and Resource Centre in the former Johnston School. Details of the various parts of the plan are described in the leaflet.

The project will cost £2m of which we have secured £1.4m. Funding applications totalling £500,000 are in process. Our aim is to raise the outstanding £100,000 by Easter 2018 via a public appeal.

We would like to offer you the opportunity to contribute to this amazing project. Leaflets can be downloaded here or collected from the Library, Festivities Charity Shop or many of the shops in the town. Thank you for your support.


The Kirkcudbright Development Trust.

The Kirkcudbright Development Trust (KDT) is a community run and managed registered charity. It has been formed as an umbrella organisation to help a wide range of local groups secure funding to develop new and improved community projects for the Town & DG6 area.

The KDT will work to provide resources for community groups by using their expertise to make grant applications to local and national bodies for funding. They will advise on the development of projects and help secure additional funding if needed . The staff of the KDT have an outstanding record of securing funding for local groups – over £6 million pounds for Scottish communities in the last 5 years.

In order to demonstrate community involvement when applying for grants an individual ‘membership’ has been established, open to everybody over 16, in the DG6 area. By becoming a member you will demonstrate support for the KDT and enable stronger applications for funding. No obligation will be placed on you by becoming a member and your details will not be used for any other purpose. A newsletter will be sent to members to keep them informed and enable them to have a say regarding future projects.
