Visibility... our favourite Charity

 are the leading sight loss charity in the west of Scotland, delivering a range of information, support and services to over 3,000 people with a visual impairment, and their families and carers, each year.  David Cant, MD and founder of Albion made the decision to support Visibility as his late father was the eminent eye surgeon, Stanley Cant who practised in Glasgow. Were he still alive today, Stanley would no longer be practising, however he would see the value in the excellent and much needed work provided by Visibility and would do all that he could to support the charity. David is doing this in memory of his father.

Russia is turning the economic corner

As I waited for my meeting counterpart in Moscow recently I had half an hour to spare, so I strolled across the bridge towards Red Square. To my left, the glittering domes of The Kremlin, to my right one of the biggest building projects I have ever seen. The erstwhile site of the infamous Rossiya Hotel, once the biggest hotel in Europe and possibly also the worst. And as I gazed down I saw paving being laid, water pipes emerging where trees would be planted and it all looked huge. But unlike past examples of Russian investment, the growing expanse of paving was being laid with high quality granite.
