A date for your diaries

Get outdoors day – November 13th 2021

Following our successful Walk in the Woods in May we have set the date for our Autumn “Get Outdoors” Day. It will be free (donatins accepted!), open to all ages and abilities and is designed to get people together outside, to take gentle exercise and socialise with a small number of old friends and new acquantancies, as well as promoting the Neil Mackenzie Trust. More details will be announced nearer the time, but please put it in your diary. Our day will be again be near Inverness, but we are hoping that we can encourage other events throughout Scotland, and possibly further afield.

If you would like to support us – particularly if you have previously had a grant from us – please consider orgainising a small event near you. It does not have to be a walk. It can be a cycle, climb, paddle, or anything else. The idea is to get a group of people together, outdoors, to promote health and wellbeing. If you are unable to do anything on November 13th, any other time in November would be good – or even October or December. If you let us know what you are thinking of, we will give you as much support as we can, and send you information about the Trust to pass on to your group.

We launched our Health and Wellbeing Grant earlier in the year. Originally it was a small grant to help people out of lockdown, but now we are finding other opportunities to help people who will benefit from our support. If you would like more details of this grant, please email us at theneilmackenzietrust@dr.com
