Welcome to the Murray Usher Foundation

Registered as a Scottish charity, the Murray Usher Foundation was set up in 1981 by Mrs Elizabeth (‘Betty’) Evelyn Murray Usher of Cally, OBE. Mrs Murray Usher was dedicated to the preservation of Gatehouse of Fleet, and to promoting the interests of the town and its people, including the inhabitants of the Parishes of Girthon and Anwoth. In their administration of the Foundation, the Trustees endeavour to support matters associated with the cultural, educational and public benefit of these communities..
