Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust Survey

We would be very grateful if you would support Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust (DAHT) by completing a survey about its operations, and future plans.

The Trust was established on 18 October 2014, by a Trust Deed, with the aim of preserving for future generations the history of Dunfermline Athletic Football Club and the memories of its players, management and supporters.

It aims to make this rich heritage available for public access. The survey will be live through December 2017.
