March 18th 2019: Highland Spring Group, the UK’s leading producer of natural source waters, has announced two key charitable partnerships for 2019.
The Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) was nominated by employees to be Highland Spring Group’s Charity of the Year.
SAMH is Scotland’s largest mental health charity and has represented the voice of people most affected by mental health problems in Scotland for more than 90 years. SAMH is dedicated to mental health and well-being for all. Their vision is of a society where people are able to live their lives fully, regardless of present or past circumstances.
Highland Spring Group employees will be working with the charity on a programme of employee-focused fundraising and volunteering activities across the year.
Additionally, Highland Spring Group are providing quantities of water to Launch Foods, a Glasgow-based food and drink redistribution charity.
Launch Foods mission is to provide healthy snacks and water to children in the Glasgow area. They want to ensure that children who may not always be able to access adequate meals at home due to various circumstances, are able to have something to eat and drink at the end of the school day and in the school holidays.
Les Montgomery, Chief Executive, Highland Spring Group said: “We are really delighted to be working with these two fantastic charities in 2019 and look forward to doing some great work with them across the year. Both charities are addressing critical issues which our business and employees are 100% committed to supporting.”
Jo Anderson, SAMH Director of External Affairs said: “Thank you to everyone at Highland Spring for voting for SAMH and choosing to support the mental health cause. We’re looking forward to working with the team on their plans to raise awareness of and funds for Scotland’s mental health. Now more than ever we need organisations like Highland Spring to help us be there for people when they need us. We can’t wait to get started!”
Craig Johnson, Founder, Launch Foods said: “We are grateful to have Highland Spring Group alongside us on this journey. They understand the positive impact we are trying to have in communities who need our help the most.”
Highland Spring Group will also continue to work with environmental charity Hubbub in 2019 on positive and engaging behaviour change initiatives, to reduce litter and encourage the careful and responsible disposal of used products.
