The MacRobert Trust

The MacRobert Trust is the proud keeper of an historic legacy, one that informs everything we do.

Her legacy lives on through our continuing connection with the military, with the countryside and farming, and in our commitment to our charitable work, in particular our assistance to young people to help them achieve their potential no matter what disadvantages they may face.
