COMPANAS Cottage, Support in Mind Scotland's Resource Centre based in Alness, have raised £145 for the 1 in 100 campaign.

Staff and regulars who attend the Highlands service mucked in (literally) in creating a memorial planter to commemorate service users who have sadly passed away.

The planter features 100 assorted bulbs, which will bloom at different times and create a year-round focal point of the cottages' garden as well as a fitting tribute to lost friends. Work began in February and you can see the progress of the planter below.
