The Middleton Trust was established in 2012 by a generous gift from Henry McKenzie Johnston, in memory of his wife, Marian Middleton and all the Middletons of Rosefarm who loved Cromarty and its people.

The Trust fund is:

  • for the benefit of young people (roughly up to the age of 24 or 25) in and around Cromarty (within the boundary of the Cromarty & District Community Council area)
  • to be used for grants to organisations and not to be paid directly to individuals and
  • to be used to promote the social, educational, cultural and recreational development of these young people.

The Trustees are:

  • Jacquie Ross (Chair)
  • Stephanie Kulesza
  • Marek Kulesza (Treasurer)
  • David Alston
  • Anne Short
  • Daphne Campbell
  • Paige Shepherd
  • Antonia Gordon

The Secretary is Estelle Ellwood - Contact: middletontrust@gmail.com
