Inverness Bus Station - 8

I did give a warning that you would be truly amazed when you saw details of the new coach service between Inverness and Glasgow - Citylink Gold!

Here we see one of the magnificent new coaches in Glasgow - bound for Inverness Bus Station.

Let us listen to Sir Brian Souter, the Chief Executive of Stagecoach, introduce the new service to us.

It would be very wrong of me to leave things here without making reference to Brian's strong Christian faith and witness.

People often ask – what makes Sir Brian tick? It’s not wealth, riches or even business success that drives Sir Brian but his deep-seated Christian faith.

A member of the evangelical Church of the Nazarene, he will readily testify that his faith is the rock on which he has built his life.

Sir Brian Souter set up his own Scottish Charity in 1992 with his wife Betty. Souter Charitable Trust assists projects engaged in the relief of human suffering, particularly, but not exclusively, those promoting spiritual welfare.

This Scottish charity operates in the UK and overseas. Over the years Sir Brian and Betty have given away millions of pounds to worthwhile causes. Sir Brian, of course, is reluctant to talk about it but in the last five years the trust has awarded over 2,737 grants worth more than £20 million.

Thanks be to God!
