Georgesons donate £2000 for Eden Court’s Arts Education Appeal
A successful appeal by Georgesons has raised an incredible £2000 to help Eden Court’s Arts Education appeal.
Bruce de Wert, Principal of Georgesons along with his Assistant Solicitor, Kimberley Mackay, offered to make people’s wills for free in return for a donation to the Eden Court appeal and was astounded by the response from people in Caithness, Sutherland and Ross and Cromarty.
He said: “I was quite overwhelmed by the generosity of my clients. They responded magnificently to the appeal. Most of our charitable Will work has been for medical or disaster charities but this is different. Eden Court is little known for its role in education. There is a wealth of young Scottish talent out there which needs to be nurtured and, if we could help, then we were happy to give our time free.”

David is one of Eden Court’s ten arts specialists who live and work in communities around the Highlands, running workshops in theatre arts for all ages and abilities.
Eden Court’s Make a Will Month raises valuable funds for the theatre’s work. As a registered charity the Theatre relies on donations to help offer an outstanding programme of theatre, music, dance, film and arts education.
