What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

The residents of Peterculter and beyond have long since enjoyed their mythical association with Roy Roy McGregor signified by a statue of the legend on a rock at the side of Culter Burn's gorge.
The first statue was a ship's figurehead from the whaling ship "Rob Roy" and was erected circa 1850 then being replaced in 1865. The third replacement was carved from a log of yellow pine and unveiled in 1926 which lasted till 1991 when the fourth statue was erected and proudly stood until it was retired in 2016.
Rob Roy Preservation Trust, which is a non profitable organisation, have recently commissioned David J Mitchell to create a replacement statue but there are considerable replacement costs involved which we as a community must raise.
The statue will be cast in a composite material less susceptible to environmental conditions plus by incorporating a lifting structure to the mould, this will make maintenance easier as the years roll on.
Any contributions you can give to this worthy cause will be gratefully received and all monies made will go towards putting Rob Roy back on the rock where he belongs amidst Peterculter's great heritage.

    (Once heard a young man on the 201 bus telling his friend it was a statue of Robbie Burns, as we drove past!) As a child in the 50s and 60s I always looked to see Rob Roy on the rocks. Hope he stays
