A Kinross firm has shown its support for two mental health charities with a massive banner on the M90.

Webster Group wants to highlight the work of Breathing Space and Support in Mind Scotland with the huge advert.

It follows the company last year using the space for a rainbow banner to show support for the NHS and its key workers.

With the pandemic sadly continuing, many people are struggling with mental health as a result of money worries over lockdown, unemployment, isolation, anxiety, and other issues.

Breathing Space operates a free confidential phone line for anyone over the age of 16 in Scotland.

Support in Mind Scotland is a national mental health charity providing compassionate support and services each week to 1300 people affected by mental illness.

It operates a national information line from Monday to Friday.

“These are two fantastic charities that have never been more needed than now,” said Daniel Webster, whose group includes a construction company, luxury housebuilding division, sustainable honey business, self storage, and hot air ballooning.

“Our rainbow NHS banner attracted so much attention last year, so we thought we would keep the banner, but update it.

“The issue of mental health has become a key feature of the pandemic sadly, and it’s far from over, so we thought this would catch the eye – that you are not alone if you are struggling.”

Breathing Space can be contacted on 0800 838587 or by going to breathingspace.scot/
