Over the past year, we've supported from afar with our Theatre School of Scotland flash mobs and performed at loads of key events. But guess what? It's time to fly right into the role as an ambassador and raise as much funds as possible for this amazing cause. I’ve had the incredible opportunity to meet some of the young people supported by this charity, and let me tell you, I can’t wait to do as much as I can!

He continued, “I’m ready to spread awareness of those facing challenges every day and take my fundraising game to superhero levels for them! Together we can make a difference for all the amazing young people and families who need our support more than ever at SBH Scotland.”
