Inverness charity Clarity Walk has received the donation from Scotland's leading road maintenance and management firm.

Clarity Walk, created by Matt Wallace, is a charity that offers digital detox walks to improve mental health, featuring male only services as well as walks for all abilities.

It also provides one to one walks.

Since August 2019, Clarity Walks has supported seven people to return to work after being signed off for mental health issues and have supported over seven thousand attendees of all ages and abilities.

It is the fifth local cause to receive a £1000 boost from Bear Scotland in 2022 after staff were invited to nominate worth causes.

In return for the donation, Bear employee's were offered a guided walk.

Matt Wallace said: “With the generous donation from BEAR Scotland we will fund our free projects to reach and support more people facing mental health issues.

“We will also use part of the donation towards the launch of my book called ‘My Walk to Clarity’ which is going to support thousands.”

Iain Murray, Bear Scotland’s managing director added: “Clarity Walk is a great charity in Inverness that has helped thousands of people get outdoors and disconnect from their digital devices.

“We are glad to hear that our donation will go towards the free programmes Clarity Walk offer and help more people struggling with their mental health. It highlights why we launched the £1,000 charity initiative and why we continue to support regional and local causes in the areas of Scotland in which BEAR operates.”
