Martyn’s Monday Club and its ladies’ peer support group that meets in Oban on a Tuesday are sporting their supporter’s logo on new sweatshirts.

Scottish Sea Farms has donated £5,000 so facilitators who  run the two help groups at Hope Kitchen can receive training, including mental health first aid and suicide prevention.

More than 130 people have passed through the club’s doors since it started, looking for a safe space to talk.

Billy Ferguson from Martyn’s Monday Club said: ‘From everyone at both groups we want to say a big thank you to Scottish Sea Farms. Training courses have been booked and there will be more to come, thanks to their generosity.’
