Support the Trust

One of the intentions of the Woolmill Trust when it was set up was to garner support from the community of Moray, engendering a sense of local participation in the survival of an important part of the industrial history of the North East of Scotland.

The Trustees of the Woolmill would welcome enquiries from those within the Knockando Community and from further afield wishing to support the Woolmill by volunteering to work at the Woolmill from time to time (gardeners are always welcome), by donating financially to the work of the Trust or by otherwise supporting the Trust. Further information on these options can be found below.

Do you have time to volunteer at the Woolmill? We have opportunities for you to help in areas such as our community garden and tour guiding. If you have any skills you would like to share with us or just want to offer your time, please contact us on 01340 810395 or email office@kwc.co.uk.
