GM Duncan's Bequest

Campbeltown residents can apply for vouchers each year from the GM Duncan Bequest and Andrew Greenlees Trust funds.

GM Duncan's Bequest


Campbeltown residents are being invited to apply for a £30 voucher for individuals and a £60 voucher for families (households of more than one person) from the town’s GM Duncan Bequest and Andrew Greenlees Trust. The voucher can be used at selected retailers in Campbeltown.

Major George Melville Duncan, who died in 1958, bequeathed money to the then Campbeltown Town Council for the ‘benefit of the poor of the Burgh in the form of gifts, of fuel, clothing and foodstuffs during the winter months’. Andrew Greenlees set up a Trust on his death which provided for the poor of Campbeltown.

Applicants should note that the application approval process comprises a number of filters to ensure that the use of the funds meet the terms of the bequest. The first of these filters is that only one application per household can be considered and that applications will generally not be considered where the income of the household is above £200 per resident in the household per week. Only residents of the Royal Burgh of Campbeltown are eligible to apply.

The trustees evaluate each application and determine awards in relation to each approved form.

Applications for 2023 closed on 13th November 2023
