Inspire Catering are delighted to have recently presented a cheque for £20,000 to Billy Watson, Chief Executive of SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health)
Through the success of our second Shine Ball in September, we raised a fantastic total of £18,000 for SAMH and since then, Inspire employees have worked hard fundraising and as a result of this and their generous efforts and donations, we have raised a further £2000! This is a charity very close to our hearts and we are thrilled to be backing them with the incredible work they do in supporting mental health issues in Scotland. Now, more and more people are living with poor mental health and that this is having a devastating impact on individuals and communities of all ages.
