An Inverness charity committed to enabling young people in the Highlands to reach their full potential is marking its 25th anniversary with the introduction of a new membership scheme.

Calman Trust – which runs Café Artysans, in Strothers Lane, as a social enterprise – has launched Friends of Calman.

A spokeswoman for the charity said: "Since establishing 25 years ago, the Calman Trust has been at the forefront of transforming the lives of young people in the Highlands who are at risk of being left behind as a result of their personal challenges.

"To mark this momentous occasion, the organisation is excited to offer the opportunity for individuals to become Friends of Calman and contribute to this fantastic cause, whilst receiving some amazing benefits in return."

Friends receive a membership card which gives them discounts at the café. They are also entered into prize draws.

The spokeswoman added: "Most importantly, by becoming a Friend of Calman, they’ll be helping Calman Trust to enable more young people in the Highlands to become confident and capable young adults.

"Sign up now for just £5 a month and join a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about supporting young people in the Highlands. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those who need it most."
