SCOTLAND’s largest industrial supply group Highland Industrial Supplies (HIS) has donated £2,500 to mental health charity Mikeysline after their fundraiser in Belladrum.

HIS built a very popular pallet maze at the festival that the kids loved going through.

They also distributed free high visibility vests to children to spread the Mikeysline message and protect them.

The funds will help the charity provide vital mental health support in the Highlands.

Garry Mackintosh, Managing Director of Highland Industrial Supplies, said: ‘We have been delighted with the response to our pallet maze in Belladrum and to have raised so much money for Mikeysline in the process – enabling the charity to continue his excellent work in the community.

“As a local business working with a charity close to the heart of the community, it was important for us to engage with our customers, friends and families locally.

“It is also important for us to encourage outdoor events and activities in our community. This went hand in hand with the free provision of 2,000 high visibility vests for children at the festival, which not only promoted Mikeysline but also allowed them to be seen safely during the winter months to come.

Mr Mackintosh has also sponsored the majority of Mikeysline billboards erected in Shiny Clubs across the Highlands.

Mikeysline Managing Director Emily Stokes added: “We were delighted to receive such a generous donation from Highland Industrial Supplies following their hugely popular pallet maze in Belladrum.

“Getting outside, breathing fresh air and exercising is a fantastic way to relieve stress and anxiety. So anything that encourages people to get up and get active is great for the well-being of the community.

“Depression and low mood are often linked to the winter months, but it’s just as easy to feel down or pressured when the sun is shining brightly. We want everyone to know that it’s okay not to be well and that support is available if you feel things are getting too much to handle on your own.
