The Robertson Trust is a charity which was established in 1961 by three sisters, Elspeth, Agnes and Ethel Robertson, when they donated their shares in the family business, founded in the 1850s by their grandfather William Robertson, to the Trust for charitable purposes. It is through the foresight of these three sisters, and the continuing hard work and generosity of the present Trustees, that SportsAid Scotland is able to provide these awards. The SOA are asked to nominate juniors who are most likely to go on to represent Scotland at senior level and to succeed on the national and international stage.
They all represented Scotland in 2016 and Jake and Grace represented Great Britain at the European Youth Championships and Junior European Cup, with Grace achieving 4th place at EYOC Sprint. They were all selected for the GB Talent Squad in 2017.
