Winter Wonderland 2020

With 2020 being an incredibly challenging year, the community missed out on many regular events and opportunities to socialise, such as The Summer event, Fireworks, Ceilidh, Kids Christmas Party and so on.  When we spoke with Calum Martin of Calum Martin Production Services, we never dreamt we could pull of a successful Winter Wonderland in a short space of time and with the risk of everything being closed back down. 

However, determination, the amazing support of the local community and Calum behind us we succeeded! We hope we managed to put a smile on the face of many children and adults. Just for a short time we forgot about the difficult times we have faced and the uncertainty of the future.

We would love to make this an annual event which can be added to every year and available to all age groups and everyone in our community. If anyone would like to be involved again or would like to get involved in any way shape or form, please email jillian-dir@sfctrust.org.uk with your name and email address and we will pop you on the community event volunteer list which we are devising!

Also, if you have any photographs of the event that you would like featured on our website or the next edition of the Stratherrick and Foyers News then please email Jillian at jillian-dir@sfctrust.org.uk.

Again, a massive thank you to EVERYBODY who attended the event, supported it and volunteered!  Roll on Winter Wonderland 2021!

Our Vision Statement

“We will act to enhance the quality of lives of people by engaging with the issues that matter to the community and by supporting people, at a sustainable level (i.e. with finance, personal time, specific knowledge etc.) to help people make things happen.”

Since 2004 we have distributed a wide variety of grants to local groups and individuals and we are now focusing on financing some long term ‘legacy’ projects too.  Full details of the sort of grants we have distributed are visible on the ‘Grants Awarded’  page and you can make your own application for a grant using the forms on the ‘Grants’ page.

We are guided by our ‘Articles of Association’ which include our Objects, both of which determine what we do and how we behave.  Full details of these are available in the ‘Documents’ page of this website but here is a summary of our ‘Objects’:

  • To prevent or relieve poverty
  • To advance education, training and/or retraining
  • To advance heritage
  • To advance environmental protection and improvement
  • To advance citizenship and/or community development
  • To advance the provision of recreational facilities

We are also listed at Companies House and abide by all relevant company legislation including producing annual accounts and sound financial planning and control. Our full Annual Accounts are available for download on the ‘Trust Documents’ page of this website.
