Trust accounts for previous years

We are responsible for a number of Trusts which were established following former gifts of monies from various individuals for particular purposes.

In gifting the monies to the Council, the individuals made specific conditions as to how it should be spent. As such, each Trust has a specific clientele, some of which is restricted.

The Trusts are managed by Democratic Services of East Ayrshire Council. Examples of the Trusts are listed below.

Miss Annie Smith Mair Trust

This Trust provides assistance to individuals in need, who were born in, or currently reside in, Newmilns.

Over 100 people have benefited from the Trust fund in recent years, through the provision of contributions to household essentials, minor home and/or garden maintenance works and adaptations, clothing, mobility and personal aids, short breaks and small donations for living expenses.

Archibald Taylor Trust

At their meeting on 14 March 2023, the Archibald Taylor Trust agreed to wind up the Trust and give the remaining money to the Holiday Project for them to finance holidays during convalescence at Sandylands Holiday Park, Saltcoats.

Applicants can apply for a holiday during convalescence for up to three weeks in each case, for individuals in need, who were born in, or currently reside in Kilmarnock. Applicants need to be recommended for this by their GP.

The application process is straightforward, discreet and confidential, and help can be given by staff in The Holiday Project to complete the application form and make holiday arrangements. Provision is also there for applicants to be accompanied by a companion/carer and for modest sums of holiday related expenditure.

If you think you meet the criteria and would like to apply, applications should be submitted to The Holiday Project for a holiday at Sandylands Holiday Park, Saltcoats.

Visit  The Holiday Project website for more information and advice on how to apply.
