GM Duncan Bequest

When Major George Melville Duncan passed away in 1958, he 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’.

Campbeltown residents are therefore invited being invited to apply for a £25 voucher for individuals and a £50 voucher for families (households of more than one person) from the town’s GM Duncan bequest. 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 £190 per person 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.
