Tryst trustees cel­e­brate get­ting char­i­ta­ble sta­tus

Strathearn Herald - - CLUB NEWS - Lynn Duke

The four new trustees of the Crieff and Strathearn Drovers’Tryst - Ian Buchan, Ju­lia Green­lees, Karin Greevy and Des Greevy - had some­thing to cel­e­brate at their first meet­ing.

The Tryst has been granted char­i­ta­ble sta­tus.

A spokesper­son told the Her­ald:“The Tryst is very pleased to have re­cently been awarded Scot­tish Char­i­ta­ble In­cor­po­rated Or­gan­i­sa­tion sta­tus, or SCIO for short.

“Septem­ber 12 was the date of in­cor­po­ra­tion. Achiev­ing this is a recog­ni­tion, by the au­thor­i­ties, of the char­i­ta­ble na­ture of the work car­ried out by the Tryst. This work in­cludes im­prov­ing the well­be­ing of par­tic­i­pants by way of the walk­ing and moun­tain bik­ing ac­tiv­i­ties that the Tryst runs, and pro­mot­ing the her­itage of the lo­cal area, in­clud­ing ed­u­ca­tion of par­tic­i­pants in the lo­cal his­tory. The Tryst also pro­vides a range of so­cial and artis­tic events for the ben­e­fit of the lo­cal and wider com­mu­ni­ties.

“The fact that the Tryst is now a SCIO is also a recog­ni­tion of its achieve­ments over the past 16 years and is a tes­ti­mony to, and legacy of, the far-sighted wis­dom of the founders and all those who fol­lowed them in man­ag­ing the Tryst. It is also a recog­ni­tion of the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of the many hun­dreds of un­paid vol­un­teers who have as­sisted, and con­tinue to as­sist, in so many ways over the years since. With­out the vol­un­teers, and of course all the par­tic­i­pants, there would be no Tryst and the lo­cal com­mu­nity would not have ben­e­fit­ted.”

The spokesper­son added that it was fit­ting that the recog­ni­tion of the Tryst’s char­i­ta­ble work has come less than two weeks be­fore this year’s event, which starts on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 7, and runs un­til Satur­day 14.

The spokesper­son added:“There has been a lot of hard work put into pre­par­ing the doc­u­men­ta­tion for the SCIO ap­pli­ca­tion, and in par­tic­u­lar the Tryst is very grate­ful for the hard work put in by the trustees.”

Char­ity law spe­cial­ist Colin Lid­dell was also thanked for his ex­per­tise and as­sis­tance in help­ing The Tryst achieve its new SCIO sta­tus.
