John McLintock Trust

Public Notice November 2014


Following a review by the Trustees of the John McLintock Trust, the arrangements outlined below have been agreed for the fulfilment of the aims and objectives of the Trust.

In recent years, all available funds have been expended in making small annual payments to individuals. The trustees wish to ensure that assistance can be made at other times of the year. They have therefore reviewed the levels of giving to ensure that funds are available so that ‘in exceptional cases assistance from the Fund may be given to necessitous persons…at other times’, while maintaining annual payments to a small number ‘of necessitous persons in Balfron Parish and District’.

The trustees are committed to ensure the confidentiality of the business it conduct. The Trustees are the Kirk Session and three members of the Congregational Board. A small sub group decides the allocation of payments. Recommendations for financial support should be made to the Administrator Ian McVean, Helenslea, Buchanan Street, Balfron, Glasgow G63 0TW. or the Minister the Rev Sigrid Marten. Details can also be passed in a sealed envelope marked John McLintock Trust to members of the Kirk Session.
