Nansen Highland is charity based in the Black Isle that provides services and support to young people with learning difficulties including specialised training, accommodation and housing support services.

Last week, leaders and young adults with Nansen Highland visited Morrison Construction’s Inverness office to take part in introductory sessions with staff and baking lessons before selling the goods in a fundraising sale.

The sessions provided an opportunity for the young adults that access the services offered by Nansen Highland to speak with Morrison Construction staff.

This event followed a 70th anniversary Family Fun Day held at the beginning of September by Morrison Construction.

The families of Nansen Highland leaders, young adults and Morrison Construction staff came together for the event at the Black Isle Show Ground, Muir of Ord.

A giant slide, bouncy castle, sumo suits, ice cream van, face painting, magician, tug of war, barbecue and raffle draw all contributed to an afternoon of fun for those who attended.

Sally Cooper, CSR Manager for Morrison Construction, said: “Morrison Construction has a progressive community benefits programme and working with Nansen Highland is one of our many local initiatives that allow us to give back.

“Our Family Fun Day was not only a great way to celebrate 70 years of Morrison Construction but was an opportunity to raise funds for a very worthy local cause. The team thoroughly enjoyed hosting Nansen Highland and learning more about the charities services and meeting the young people that benefit.’’
