Forever Fund Projects

The funds raised through the sale of land has allowed the Trust to fund a number of local projects each year.

To date, North Berwick Trust Ltd has awarded a total of £1,520,996.71 to support individuals and organisations living or operating within North Berwick.

The Trust are proud to have supported over 200 projects for the benefit of our local community. These projects have been wide-ranging from across our funding themes including support for the Lobster Hatchery, North Berwick Rugby and Football Club, North Berwick Environment and Heritage Trust and Fringe by the Sea.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Trust also took action by offering unprecedented relief grants for local businesses. We are delighted to have been able to support 53 local businesses and groups, including the North Berwick Community Council Resilience Effort.

In our most recent grants round (spring 2024), the Trust awarded £99,352.50 to support 13 projects, as listed below. As usual, the projects are very diverse and will benefit a wide cross-section of the community.
