Charity car wash to raise funds for the suicide prevention charity in the highlands

Robert Murray of SR Reflection.

There’s a charity car wash going on tomorrow to raise money for Mikeysline.

Organizer Robert Murray of Valeters SR Reflection said he wanted to raise funds to support the suicide prevention charity.

Customers are welcome at the company’s premises at 43A Harbor Road in Inverness from 8:30 AM.

To help even further, Mr. Murray also wants to give away two mountain bikes – one for a boy and one for a girl between the ages of six and nine.

He said: “I have had several conversations with parents in which I was told how difficult this lockdown was for the children.

“I always knew it was going to be difficult, but it isn’t until you talk to a parent that you realize how bad things are.”

He added, “If we can make a few kids smile, I will be very happy.

“The message we want to send is ‘It’s okay to be wrong’.

“I think if we can get our kids to accept this and talk more, they may have a better chance in life.

“I suffer from depression and mental health problems. Mountain biking really saved my life. When I have a bad day, I can go out on a bike and feel so much better.

“We’re looking for a boy or a girl to get the bikes. We want to hear how the lockdown affected them and how they dealt with it.

“This is not a raffle or auction, we just want two kids who you think deserve the bikes.”

To nominate a child, visit SR Reflection’s Facebook page or email Mr Murray at spongerob2449@live.co.uk if you do not wish to share details online.
