Covid 19 Appeal

Sadly on top of the tragic human cost of the disease, the pandemic is having a significant impact on many charities, including The Burn.
Cancellation of bookings means we expect to lose a vital part of our income this year, and we will face a large financial gap.
We therefore ask our friends to consider helping us through this difficult time. To donate use the ‘Give to The Burn’ tab below. You will be directed to the Goodenough donations page. Simply select “The Burn” from the dropdown menu, and please use Gift Aid if you can.
Thank you.

Supporting The Burn

24th July 2019 was the 75th anniversary of the death of James Russell, whose tragic loss in action prompted his family to gift The Burn to Goodenough College. His life was celebrated at The Burn by the planting of 75 trees in his memory. Local, national, and international friends sponsored the planting of these trees. The Burn is keen to plant more trees and to place commemorative benches on the many walks within the beautiful grounds. For full details of how you can support us:

Challenging Times - Helping Each Other

Over ten thousand of you watched our appeal which is amazing and encouraging. THANK YOU! Your support means a lot to us and your positive reaction has lifted our spirits. Some of you have also donated and to you we send our deepest appreciation and heartfelt THANKS.

We in turn are doing our best to help others at this difficult time and I just wanted to use this message to say THANK YOU to The Burn Head Chef and Catering Manager, Gordon Craik. Over the past 12 weeks he has prepared and delivered over 1000 meals to more than 40 members of the Local community.

Let’s hope that the post COVID 19 world is a kinder and more caring place where those in need have someone to turn to. The film below serves as a record of what Gordon did during Lockdown. THANK YOU.

Challenging Times - Uncertain Future

2020 is The Burn’s 70th year as an academic retreat and holiday centre. It was supposed to have been a time of celebration but then everything was stopped by the COVID 19 pandemic and The Burn was forced to close.

Lockdown is already taking its toll, and with no income being generated, The Burn faces a very challenging future. The demands of maintaining the estate and the historic infrastructure never cease.

In 2019 many of you answered our call and supported a very successful tree planting campaign. This year we are simply doing all we can to survive the pandemic lockdown so that we can open our doors again.

If you are able and would like to support The Burn in its hour of need then please visit our website at www.theburn.co.uk and follow the links to make a donation. Alternatively you could sponsor a tree or garden seat by visiting www.theburn.co.uk/support-us

Our heartfelt thanks go out to all our friends, followers and supporters at this difficult time and we hope to see many of you back at The Burn in due course. If you would like to know more about what we do then please call David on 01356 648281. Thank you.

As a family we have used “The Burn” on numerous occasions. A family wedding, a family get together, booked the estate cottages on the grounds on all occasions. “The Burn” has so much to offer and the staff can’t do enough to accommodate your requirements. Highly recommend.
