BYT works hard to try to find funding from all sorts of sources. The local fund-raising which you do can help a great deal. Thank you to all of you who make the effort to give something back.

Plans for change at BYT


At the recent AGM, it was agreed to change the way BYT is managed.

It will still be run by volunteers but their responsibilities will be slightly different as part of a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). It is hoped to have the changes in place by late Spring.

The next few months will be very important as we try to secure funding to allow us to continue our many activities.

We still need your support - either by helping to fund-raiser, coming to see productions or offering some time to act as a Trustee.

If you want more information, please contact Judy Collins at
