We’re delighted to announce that throughout our 2-year partnership with SAMH we have raised a combined total of £35K for the charity.
Partnering with a great organisation like SAMH came at such a crucial time just a few months before Covid started and we were able to benefit from their resources and advice. 2020 and 2021 saw SAMH busier than ever as looking after our mental health was at the forefront due to the added pressure created from the pandemic and lockdowns.
Since the first lockdown, we've welcomed the advice and initiatives SAMH has offered to support our team's wellbeing. The mental health fallout from the pandemic has been well documented and it comes as no surprise the demand for mental health services has been at an all-time high. Throughout, SAMH has brought mental health support to those struggling with added pressures and isolation.
SAMH regularly sent information packs, invitations to webinars and recordings for those unable to attend. This input and material allowed us to align with SAMH’s mental health spotlight for the month. Looking back at the partnership, our highlights consist of our Steps for SAMH challenge, SAMH presenting to our staff, spending time with our managers and Bruce Stevenson staff taking part in SAMH’s speaker sessions.
CEO Edward Bruce commented:
“SAMH has been a great charity to partner with throughout the pandemic years. I have been very impressed with the useful tips and guides they have been sharing with us. Bruce Stevenson is firmly committed to maintaining a mentally healthy workplace, and SAMH has helped us to achieve that.
We were very proud to support SAMH during the last couple of years.”
Robin Holden, SAMH Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser added:
“We’d like to thank Bruce Stevenson for working in partnership with SAMH over the 2 years and raising an amazing £35,000. We’re grateful to everyone at Bruce Stevenson for their recognition of the urgent need for all of us to do more on mental health. These funds will be put to use immediately and will help transform lives across Scotland.”
