The Lochaber Rural Education Trust (LRET) learning centre is a unique facility educating groups of school children – many of whom have learning difficulties and additional support needs – in rural skills, environmental studies and animal husbandry. In October last year we donated labour to provide renewable heating to the LRET building adjacent to our Fort William HQ in less than one day in order to make it a more comfortable space for them to carry out their valuable work with community groups.

The project has been shortlisted for both the ‘Best Community Engagement Award’ and the ‘Sustainable Development Award’.
The prestigious Scottish Green Energy Awards are an annual highlight of the renewables events calendar and will be held in Edinburgh on 30th November.
