Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP raises funds for mental health charity
Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP (WJM) has been raising funds as part of the ‘Step Up for SAMH’ campaign run by the Scottish Association of Mental Health charity.
Team members in the St Vincent Street office in Glasgow participated in 14 days of physical activity that was logged on the Strava fitness app to help raise funds for the organisation which offers mental health support services to people across Scotland.
Staff across the firm’s five offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Dunfermline and Dunblane, ran, swam and cycled their way through the two weeks, clocking up a total of 854.66KM and spent a total of 204 hours and 32 minutes exercising.
The teams were also given a well-deserved break in the form of a joint coffee morning that helped boost their fundraising total to over £1,600, whilst also being a prime opportunity to discuss mental health and wellbeing with colleagues.
Alison Marshall, partner WJM, said: “We’re delighted to be able to support SAMH in their work across Scotland and in our community, giving support to those that need it. Their knowledge, skill and will to help others is more important than ever.
“Thankfully, mental health is being taken increasingly more seriously across the board now, and promoting good mental health in the workplace is an incredibly important part of this progress.”
“We know SAMH does wonderful work and it’s a pleasure to support them. I am so grateful to the Glasgow team for how much effort they’ve put into this campaign.”
