Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust Seeks New Trustees

LISTEN: Cedric Wilkins explains what’s involved in being a PKCT trustee

The Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust (PKCT) is looking for a new trustee to join its board.

The charity has been running for 25 years and works in the countryside to improve access by building paths and undertaking conservation projects.

Chair of the PKCT Cedric Wilkins said: “A trustee is asked to keep an eye on the operations of the charity because we need to be careful about operating within charitable rules.

“It’s also about playing an active role in taking the charity forwards.”

The trust is responsible for managing the Perthshire Big Tree Country, the Cateran Trail and the River Tay Way.

They also raised money to ensure the conservation of the Birnam Oak – a tree made famous by Shakespeare’s Macbeth – and monitor other historic countryside attractions throughout Perthshire.

Mr Wilkins added: “We’re really looking for somebody who is interested in the work above all and who shares our passion for Perthshire’s countryside and a desire to develop projects which enhance the experience which communities can enjoy.”
