Assistance for Members of Brechin Diocese

From the Murray Scarlett Glen Esk Fund

The purpose of this fund is to assist people from the Diocese to go to St Drostan’s Lodge.  It will pay for young people up to the age of eighteen, Students in Further and Higher Education, and adults in special circumstances e.g. receiving pension credit, unemployment or disability benefits.  A payment can also be made towards the cost of transportation to/from the Lodge.

This grant will be paid to the church not to St Drostan’s: you should make the full payment to St Drostan’s for your stay.
