SBH Scotland welcome 'FABULOUS' new ambassador

Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) has welcomed Scottish radio presenter and television personality, James Smith, as a charity ambassador.

James Smith aka Mr fabulous

Also known by his alter-ego, Mr Fabulous, James presents a number of shows on Paisley FM, Scene Radio and Camglen Radio and regularly works with STV, will be raising the profile of SBH Scotland, which works with young people and their families who have been affected by the life-long conditions of spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

James, from the West of Glasgow, has been involved with SBH Scotland for a number of years, giving support to our fundraising efforts and acting as a judge at our annual ‘Strictly Come Prancing’ event, which was inspired by the hit BBC show.

As ambassador, James’ main role will be to work with the charity to raise awareness of spina bifida and hydrocephalus, along with making people aware of the services the charity can offer, including support and social groups, financial advice and health clinics.

James will be joining SBH Scotland’s team of existing ambassadors and patrons, including Gordon Ramsay, Duncan Bannatyne, Nicola Cassells and Meggan Dawson-Farrell.

James said: “I am so excited to have joined SBH Scotland as an ambassador. I work with many charities, and I’ve been blown away by the incredible work SBH Scotland carries out to help those with spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

“I want to make sure that everyone who has been affected by these conditions knows that they are not alone; SBH Scotland has helped to create a community of people who can help and support you through whatever life throws at you, from me, other volunteers and their staff, to those attending the support groups.”

SBH Scotland are required to raise over £1 million in funding to continue to support over 3,500 children, young people and adults with our support services. With the unprecedented outbreak of Coronavirus we face further financial challenges as we work to ensure all members know they are not alone at the most isolating of times. To reach our targets we are now almost solely reliant on the generosity of the public and trust and grant making bodies after many fundraising initiatives have been postponed or cancelled.

Deborah Roe, fundraising director at SBH Scotland, said: “James has been a huge advocate for our charity for a number of years, and his appointment as charity ambassador now makes it official. It’s also an incredibly positive bit of news for us to share at such an uncertain time for so many.

“James is an incredibly compassionate person with a real desire to help others, just as we do at SBH Scotland. We’re looking forward to working with him for years to come, helping those who need our support.”
