Staff and family from Edzell Health Centre raised an incredible £606.66 for Insight Counselling in a recent sponsored walk.

Staff had already selected the charity to benefit from their trip up Clachnaben.

Walter Baxter, Development Officer for Insight’s Rural Angus Leader Programme, collected the cheque on behalf of the charity.

Insight Counselling, whose main Angus office is based in Arbroath, has an outreach location in Edzell health centre, where counselling takes place. There is no charge for their counselling sessions but donations help fund the service.

The independent charity delivers a generic counselling service throughout Dundee and Angus and covers a range of issues including stress, abuse and bereavement.

Originally founded in 1995, Insight Counselling expanded into Arbroath to service Angus in 2009, because around one third of their clients comes from the Angus area.
