Kinross group backs mental health charities with updated banner

KINROSS-based Webster Group is supporting two mental health charities with a new banner on the M90.

Last year, the businesses positioned a large rainbow banner on the M90 to show support for the NHS and its key workers during the Covid-19 pandemic. With the impact of the pandemic resulting in mental health issues for many people, Webster has updated the banner to show support for the charities Breathing Space and Support in Mind Scotland.

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 support and services each week to 1,300 people.

“These are two fantastic charities that have never been more needed than now,” explained 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.”
