Stuart has been with the Trust for 20 years and has recently taken on the role of Chairman.  In his business life he was a Director of a major whisky transport company.  He is now blissfully retired and enjoying his passions of walking, kayaking the major lochs of Scotland and growing mountains of home-grown produce. He lives in Aberdeenshire with his wife Margaret and has four children.

Michael setup the Trust in 1975 with his uncle David Kinnear Thomson.  After working many years in the well known Perth Wine &  Spirits distributor Peter Thomson’s, he spent a number of years as Finance Director of the Children 1st charity before moving into a prolonged period of semi-retirement.
