TWO CENTURIES OF SUPPORTING SCOTS IN NEED
Charity has always been at the heart of the Royal Caledonian Ball. This is no less true now than it was two hundred years ago.
Funds raised at the Ball go towards an annual round of grants made by the Royal Caledonian Charities Trust. The Trust supports small to medium sized charities across Scotland, ensuring funds go where they are most needed and make the greatest possible difference.
Grants focus on six key areas of work: the elderly; children and young people; veterans; the homeless; the ill and injured; and those living with disabilities.
Governance & Supporters
The Royal Caledonian Ball and Charities Trust is fortunate to receive patronage from the Royal Family as well as a number of private individuals and corporate supporters.
The day-to-day running of the Trust is overseen by our Secretary in collaboration with the Trust's Chairman, Mr John Shields, and the Executive Committee. Our Scottish Committee further fortifies our ties to Scotland.
