Chest Heart & Strike Scotland/Scottish Association for Mental Health Partners at chartered surveying firm DM Hall are extending their financial support for a further year to leading Scottish charities, Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS) and SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health).

The agreement with the company’s charity partners was initially put in place in January 2019 and was due to close in December 2020.
