Kim Proven, LETi chairwoman, said: “We are delighted with our bid result.

“Not just for our community contribution towards the £24,900 total raised for Air Ambulance and not just to enhance the BLiSS trail story but for the collective ownership and sense of achievement by a community working together towards a common goal.

“It shows what can be done.

“A huge thank you to everyone who supported this and hats off to Crieff Succeeds for an innovative and exciting summer campaign culminating in a generous donation to a charity much valued by rural communities.”

LETi collaborated with Loch Earn residents and community groups to fund a collective bid for the BLiSS trail in advance of the auction at Crieff Hydro on October 9.
