With sadness we say goodbye to our Chief Executive, Sue Savege, who after nearly three years with the Cabrach Trust is moving on to pastures new.

Sue savege is stepping down as CEO of the Cabrach Trust following 2.5 years of significant progress and achievement under Sue’s tireless leadership.

Sue said, ‘It has been an absolute privilege to have been able to lead the Trust over the past few years. We have achieved so much – planning permission, hundreds of thousands of pounds of fundraising, getting a great team in place – and perhaps most importantly developing the vision of what we want to achieve here with the community, and attracting both regional and national recognition for our work. It really has been – and is – such a great project to be a part of.’

On her decision to move on from the Trust, Sue said ‘It’s been a really hard decision. I am so proud of what we have achieved so far, but it’s simply time for me to take a breather! Some of my family need more support just now, so I am looking forward to time with them, as well as a garden that is a never ending project – and here’s hoping for a great winter so I can explore more of Royal Deeside and the Cairngorms with more days out on the skis and in my running shoes.

Grant Gordon, Chairman of the Cabrach Trust says, ‘We are all very grateful to Sue for her tireless efforts to make the Cabrach Trust the success it is today. It’s thanks to Sue that the Trust now has funding, a staff team, and most importantly, ‘a plan’. We wish Sue well in her future endeavours and we look forward to staying in touch and seeing Sue at future Cabrach Trust events.

Sue to leaves the Cabrach Trust to run her own charity consultancy, providing fundraising, strategy and social impact support for charities across Scotland. Stay in touch with Sue at
