Clean shaves were in for Highland Industrial Supplies (HIS) staff on 31st October, as a good number of the male team members prepared for Movember, the month of growing moustaches to raise awareness of men’s health, with their chosen charity being Mikeysline, in memory of their good friend and co-worker Adam Grant. Adam sadly and suddenly passed away in May.
As Ross MacLaren who is organising the fundraiser stated:
Garry Mackintosh, Company Director, HIS said:
Emily Stokes, Service Manager at Mikesyline said “The support we have had from HIS has been tremendous in raising awareness of Mikeysline through the banner they have sponsored since world mental health day in October, which faces the A9, through to this planned fundraiser.
The more we all talk about mental health, emotional distress and suicide openly, the more chance there is that people will access the support when they need it, reducing the tragic loss of lives in Highland. We are extremely grateful for all staff at HIS for taking on this challenge in honour and memory of their friend and work colleague, Adam, and for ensuring that those wider messages go out.
HIS’s fundraising efforts during November, with match funding by HIS made over £25,000 for Mikesyline!
